Top Review by Kittencalrecipezazz

Great recipe but I would have preferred the cookies to be just a little sweeter, these cookies are very fragile when baked, so cool well before removing from the pan otherwise they will break apart, thanks Kaarin, these will make a great addition to my holiday cookie platter!...Kitten:)
