This is just like the recipe I have used for years. Many variations can be done, one of which is tinting the dough with colors to match the the holiday or season. this is a must try recipe!!!!! - 23 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Disappointed. These cookies crumbled too easily. I lost at least 60% before every being able to serve them. Also, need to be careful with the size. Make sure the balls are no bigger than a quarter or they taste too floury. - 20 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
