This was such a good cookie! I made them at a gathering and they were gone in about 5 minutes!

Cookie tasted alright and was easy to make but crumbled apart so much that most of the cookies were just crumbs getting them off the pan. Also needs something more to make them have a little more flavor. I made 2 batches not knowing that the 1st batch would be so bad that on the 2nd one I added more cinnamon.

For such an unhealthy mix of ingredients, I expected a MUCH better cookie (egg yolk + sugar + butter = good? That's at least how it formulated in my mind). If you have an undeniable craving for butter, this cookie is perfect. Otherwise, the taste was lackluster, and the texture was horrible (the final product is, indeed, crumbly -- too much so, for my taste). I prefer a cookie you can actually hold onto without it disintegrating or affecting the manner in which it's consumed. With that said, the height the cookies are placed in the oven is very important. Not too close to the fire, or else you'll end up with black-bottomed uncooked egg/sugar/butter mash.
