Perfect! Flavorful and easy to handle. It rolled like a dream. The cookies are lightly golden brown and crisp with a nice vanilla flavor. This is the recipe we used for our Christmas cookies this year and everyone loved them. Thanks!

Very good, not so sweet cookies. The dough was easy to handle even though I did not chill it first. I should have read the reviews before I made them because I did find that the baking time was too long. The first batch was over browned but still good.

Tese were great!! My only problem was at 8 all of the cookies, which were apporixamately 1/8" thick, were burned to a crisp. I made a second batch and but them in for 6.5-7 min. and they look great! Thanks for the recipe!!
