Different from the "cookies" we are used to making. Seems like a bit of work, but my neighbor makes them and they are yummy!

The texture is simular to shortbread cookies. They tasted good. I used the extra syrup in a tiny bowl for extra dipping. The cookies are a bit dry inside like shortbread cookies.
