      We loved these cookies! They're very buttery, not too sweet. They just melt in your mouth. I cut the recipe in half, but next time I will do the whole recipe and freeze some to have them handy. Very easy to make.

      Very Good and very easy -- light and tasty. I baked a small batch exactly as directed -- they were good, but a bit flat. For the second batch I added a pinch of salt, that helped a bit, but I thought they could use a bit more flavor and texture so I added a 1/4 cup of vanilla sugar. That really rounded off the flavor. I would suggest adding 6 tablespoons of vanilla sugar to the whole batch or 6 tb of granulated sugar and another 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. I got 110 cookies with a small cookie scoup -- they took 16 minutes to cook, I did two sheet at once -- reversing the sheets and a flipping them 180 degrees after 8 minutes.
