"I am an avid cookie baker, and these were good, BUT...the recipes needs about a 1/4 tsp or more of SALT (I tested a few before I added the salt, and the salt helped tremendously). I would also recomme..." See morend cutting the recipe in half (except the vanilla) because you'll still get about 4 1/2 dozen cookies. Also, don't press them down too much; they'll flatten as they bake."
"What a yummy cookie. I added 1tsp of almond flavoring and 1/4tsp extra salt like other reviewers suggested. I used my pampered chef small cookie scoop to shape the balls so it made the job quick and ..." See moreeasy. I rolled the first batch in white sugar as the recipe called and I could see that it was going to make alot of cookies. So for the next pan I used cinnamon and sugar mixed together and the next cocoa and sugar. It made for a nice variety and quite beautiful! I will be keeping this recipe forever. Barb in BC Canada"
"I grew up with these cookies as a family recipe, only the original recipe of my childhood calls for vegetable shortening instead of butter. But butter is so much better! I never thought of using butte..." See morer till I saw this recipe. The cookies are just awesome. So tender, yet crisp, they really do melt in your mouth. I flatten mine with the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in sugar rather than with a fork. It produces perfectly smooth, gorgeous cookies. These guys are too fragile to frost (if you did manage to spread frosting on without breaking them, they would absorb the moisture from the frosting and turn unappetizingly soggy) but colored sugar sprinkles is an option."
