These were very good. They went well with coffee. I only added 1 teaspoon of salt as 1 1/2 seemed like alot. I was glad I did and think I would add even a little less next time. These are a yummy cookie that will "melt" in your mouth. We very much enjoyed these and I am sure they will be on my Christmas cookie trays. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
