The name of this recipe really had me hoping for a rich, melt-in-the mouth cookie. However, I found this dough hard to work with because it was so dry. I ended up adding in approx. another 1/4 C. of butter. I also made the mistake of not reading the recipe all the way through. When I was ready to shape and bake the cookies, I realized there was no info on the size to make them, and no time given to bake them! I made them in the standard "walnut" size and guessed on the time. It took about 12 minutes to lightly brown the edges. The cookies turned out to have a very mediocre taste to them. I was diasppointed.
