Another excellent cookie, Katii! These are easy to make. I keep the rolls in my freezer, and just pull one out and wait a minute before slicing and baking. These are also nice with a bit of melted chocolate drizzled on them. The cookie is sweet, light and very fragile, good buttery taste, and melt in your mouth feel. Thanks for this recipe!
