MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 17, 2011

"These are so yummy! I have made them the last 3 Christmases. I top them with candied cherries. This recipe doesn't yield a large batch so I double the recipe. It turns out fine to use 1 whole egg when doubling rather than 2 egg yolks. Yum! Mine are baking right now, can't wait to get a taste!"

"These cookies were kind of bland, not a lot to them. I might try this recipe again but I would add almond flavoring to the mix."
