"I used butter instead of shortening-made a soft dough that stuck to the waxed paper. Would chill the dough 10 min. Or so next time. There will be a next time cause these are great!"

"Add 1/4 tsp baking powder to make a slightly puffy cookie. also divide dough in half before rolling to make smaller tea size cookies. Makes 40 tea cookies"

"Delicious! These cookies looked and tasted like they came from a fancy bakery! Definitley a keeper. (Hint: Learn from my mistake - don't chill the roll too long or the melted chocolate becomes too hard to cut!)"
