Like the previous reviewer I, too, had to add quite a bit of extra flour to make the dough firm enough to roll out. Perhaps because of the extra flour, I thought the cookie part was rather dry and doughy. I shared them with my husband and with a neighbor. They both agreed with my assessment of the dough, but they did think the cookies were good overall.
I love these cookies. My grandfather used to make them, unfortunately he passed away without leaving us a written recipe, so I was glad to find one here. However, I found the flour wasn't quite enough - I needed to add almost 2 more cups to make the dough easily rollable without sticking to the table. Otherwise, they were delicious, and very easy to make. Thank you for sharing!

My all-time favorite cookbook is the Culinary Arts Institute Cookbooks. My favorite past times are baking and cooking with my 3 kids ages:15,8 and 3. We love food fights. My true passion is my family. I love to cook for them, and teach them to cook. I learned to cook when I was 10 yrs old. I am now 36 and can make most anything from scratch. I make everything from baking powder to laundry soap. Being frugal for me is hobby and one of my passions.
