I make these every Christmas. They are a favorite

Top Review by Charlotte J

These are very delicious. They would have been a 5 star but you really need to chill the dough before you try to roll into balls. Once rolled into balls, I rolled them in sugar. Taking a glass I slightly flatten the cookies before going into the oven. Baked 8 minutes and they came out soft and chewy, just the way I like them. Made for Fall 2011 PAC
