Great recipe. I found that pressing dough into 8 x 8 pan and baking is great, or even better forming dough into log and chilling overnight then slicing and baking is even better. Great flavor, my husband loves them!


This was a very big hit in my family--everyone wanted the recipe at Christmas. Best method for me was rolling into a log, then slicing. For a different (and really yummy) flavor and texture, try six-grain "oat"meal. We discovered this when it was the only thing in the house to use (CA grocery strike). Also was very good with raw sugar sprinkled over the top before baking--gives cookies a bit of a sparkle and a touch of sweetness.

Fantastic, but surprising dough. I mixed up the dough, put it in the refrigerator, went to gather eggs, found the dough had expanded over the top of the bowl and pushed the refrigerator door open. I worked the dough back down, spreading it out in a 7x12 pan, baked it and enjoyed very much a wonderful cookie. I would like to know what makes the dough expand and if anyone else had that happen.
