These turned out very well, although I thought they would not. The final product was loved by everyone in the family, but rolling out the dough was difficult because it was so crumbly. I made one batch and then added more butter to the remaining dough, which seems to have made it a little less crumbly, and easier to roll out. The taste was the same in both batches. And I also used 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 2 tbls. of shortening for the dip. Good recipe, but maybe some modifications are needed to make the dough easier to roll out.
