Very tasty! I didn't chill the dough and the cookies turned out just fine. Also I only cooked them 15 minutes.



Delicious! A big hit at my cookie exchange. Pretty, with a chocolate shortbread flavor--rich but not too sweet. I just dusted them with powdered sugar instead of rolling them--it was easier and just as attractive, I think. Don't know why dough has to be refrigerated first--I skipped this step with one batch and the turned out just fine. Highly recommended!



Kids and I made these, delicious! we omited the nuts because they don't like nuts and we substititued some oatmeal to keep the dough stiff, they didn't stay round like a snowball but they got eaten SO fast. Fun and tastey recipe we will make again!
