This cookie had a chalky taste, in addition the texture appeared to be very dry, to taste and touch! The recipe called for nine servings, I made three dozen. I sprinkled powdered sugar over the cookies, still couldn't get away from the chalky taste. I wonder if something was left out of the recipe? Sorry!
