      I agree completely with the review that these were bland but had great potential. They actually reminded me a bit of biscuits. Maybe my dough needed to be chilled?

      These were very good and the texture was great! The dough was very sticky and a bit difficult, but I got through it. My only complaint was that they were a little bland, so next time, I might add a little lemon juice or maybe some lemon zest. But I will make again.
