"I enjoyed making these cookies they were easy to make; I did roll them and flatten like one reader suggested. I was hoping theyd be a little softer but may have to adjust cooking time as mine didnt look exactly like hers :(Still a very good cookie tho."
"wow! awesome recipe! family loved them"
"I think the real butter flavor is wonderful with vanilla or almond. The flavor intensifies after keeping over night. (If there are any left). They also store well. I have made thumb prints with this recipe too."
"Wonderful cookies. I have been making these for years and know they freeze well, but just discovered that if you eat them when they aren't quite defrosted all the way, they are kind of chewy like a Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie."
"this cookie was outstanding!!! dont know why everyone complains of no flavor. I thought they were perfect! rolling balls and flattening with glass dipped in sugar was a great idea and then the end result is a perfectly round cookie. The person who submitted this should have suggested that in order to look like her pictured perfectly round cookies! gail borczyk,field editor"
