Makes a very crisp, very light cookie. Tastes very buttery and yummy. Can't go wrong with this recipe!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 17, 2013

Dough was just dry crumbles that did not 'stick' together to form cookies to drop on the sheet. I actually wondered if eggs or liquid had been inadvertently omitted from the recipe. I adjusted the recipe to make the

Toffee Almond Sandies. That dough turned out as expected.
