Wonderful little tea-cake like cookies. So rich, and the best vanilla flavor ever! Definitely a keeper that will be a wonderful addition to my Christmas cookie baskets, and so easy too! Thank you so much for posting this one. :-)

This is very good but let me emphasize again- it is cake-like! If you love cake you will love it. It is like having little individual pieces of cake. You will need a havy duty mixer as it put a big strain on my regular one. The most important thing to know in choosing this "cookie" is one more time- "it is CAKE-LIKE".

We really enjoyed these cookies. They came out puffy, moist and cake-like, and they are not overly sweet. I didn't add any chips or nuts, but I did add a drop of lemon extract. Yummy! Thanx for posting these cookies; I'll make them again.
