These cookies turned out perfect. I followed the recipe exactly even though I hardly ever do that. I didn't chill dough or melt the butter and the were great. If they stick to your cookie sheet, do your self a favour and throw out your cookie sheets and buy new ones. I am a very experienced and excellent baker and had to throw out some of mine even though they were new and a good name brand. Now I don't have any problems with sticking. So don't torture yourself, just throw them out.
My family asks for these every Thanksgiving. They are great!
