I've made these twice now and they're wonderful. I had a problem the first time, very likely due to the heat wave we're having right now which caused the dough to be a bit too soft for easy rolling. On the plus side, those cookies came out very thin, crispy and delicious. The 2nd time I refrigerated the dough before rolling out. These cookies were a bit thicker and still delightful. Thanks for sharing. I'll be making these again. Made for the ZWT6 German forum Chocolate Challenge by me, a member of Seasoned Sailor and his his Sassy Sirens.
