      These were great cookies! I did make some changes though and that only made them better. I treated this like any cookie dough and prepared everything in one big bowl and skipped steps 12-17 entirely as it just seemed like alot of extra work for no particular reason. I also saw no need to add extra flour unless I was looking for a much more dense cookie which I wasn't. I just dropped spoonfuls of batter on my cookie sheet and did not form them at all. So my first batch contained all the ingredients as written and they were o.k. but for the second batch I added some almond extract and then they tasted fantastic! Yum!
