Well I tried to get in touch with Ellie to find out how much flour went into this recipe since it`s not posted above. I suggest using 1 1/2 cups flour I also added 1/2 teaspoon baking powder. I used mini muffin tins as to have them go father. Pressed the dough just to the rim. I got 28 cookies. The perfect size. I think the regular size would be to large. I didn`t refriderate just popped them into the oven. These would be a 5 star but with the guessing on how much flour to use. The directions could be better. I can`t imagine what a chopstick would do so I didn`t bother. Very tasty I really enjoyed the hint of rosemary. Another batch of cookies to add to my Cookie Christmas list!! Thanks Ellie!
