    These are excellent. OMG....this was exactly the type of recipe I was looking for. The picture doesn't look like how they are, they do 'crack' ever so slightly but not like I see in this picture. And to be honest, the picture doesn't do this recipe justice! LOL, so don't let the pic fool ya. You MUST try this recipe. Perfection. The recipe should meant to say 1 large egg and one egg yolk. This is a keeper. I like that it doesn't make too many cookies, too.

    I love these, and had it posted until recently discovered as a duplicate. It looks like the flour differs from the original, as well as the egg. The original recipe is 2 cups 2 Tbps flour, and it has 1 large whole egg, and 1 large egg yolk. Great cookies!
