I wanted to make a "nut cookie" and I chose this one because of the low baking temp. It did indeed produce a "melt in your mouth" texture! I did sift my flour, too. My daughter really liked them, too, and she is choosy about her cookies! I am going to make some more and use for my cookie exchange. Thanks so much, Linda, for a recipe I am going to make every year! Roxygirl
