These are light, crispy, awesome. I learned to make them in Ireland. The measurements are converted from metric, so I had to do weights. Hope this doesn't cause a problem for too many people, but these cookies are worth it. I like to use them as accompaniments to custards and ice creams, or as a part of a cookie tray.

These cookies had a great texture - light and crispy, exactly as P4's description. I found them a little bland as written, although my husband LOVED them, so I added some orange zest to the last batch, and they were really good. I dropped them by rounded teaspoons, and baked some 9-10 minutes and others about 12 minutes. Thanks for the recipe, P4!
