I tried these cookies and most definitely, due to my utmost pleasure in baking and testing, will make again for the holiday Easter season. Very delicate and soooo flavorful. Perfect for that little stash of love you want to put in clear plastic wrap and tie with a bow...this is a tested and proven recipe by me and will go in my collection of I LOVE IT'S. The cookies were small, but that is exactly what I expected and wanted. To make larger cookies with the recipe, merely double it.
