I love these cookies!!! I had to add about 1/2 cup of extra flour and then the dough was incredibly easy to work with. The caraway seeds were so nice in this and sesame seeds are always a great addition. You could replace the seeds with something else in this dough - it can easily be sweet or savoury. The only problem is that the recipes states baking soda but the instructions state baking powder. I figured that it was the baking powder! Made for ZWT8. Thanks Baby Kato! :)
