This is the first time that I ACTUALLY followed a recipe to the tee.... And they were unpalatable! Too alkaline! Maybe dial back 1/4 on the corn starch and flour and add a bit more butter.

These are the best cookies! I add a bit more by drizzling melted tempered chocolate on them and they are delish! Try them! They are also a Christmas tradition with my family! I'm goinng to upload a a picture! Enjoy!

I made this recipe last Christmas to share with co-workers and it was a BIG HIT!! So delicious and really easy to make. You won't go wrong with this recipe to share with friends or simply for the family. These cookies are now part of my Family Tradition.
