These sound like they'll be great - I plan to try them for a cookie exchange.

Top Review by KitchenQuartz

These were delicious! Verry verrry good! They were soft and chewy, even after we froze the extras for a few weeks and ate them later. The only problem we had was the dough rolling stage. We had to mix in a lot more flower before the dough became unsticky and solid, even though we'd left it in the fridge for a LONG time. So less than five stars for difficulty, but most definetly a recipe I'll use again and again because the taste is worth a little trial.
