My husband enjoys these cookies so much that he usually can't wait until they're set to start eating them. If you'd like, try dipping them into melted semisweet chocolate and chopped pecans.

"My friends made these last year and this year for Christmas gifts and they are so yummy!! She didn't put any nuts on, as my son is allergic. Some she dipped in regular chocolate and some in white chocolate and sprinkles."

"These are very good shortbread cookies. I refrigerated the dough before forming the finger logs, then refrigerated the finger logs before cooking and they still went flat when cooking. It may have something to do with the humidity on that day, it was quite humid. Took them to a picnic dinner with home made ice cream as the dessert and these cookies were a huge hit with the ice cream. Very flavorful. Hard to stop eating them!"

"These are crazy easy, and way to fantastic to keep in the house, they must be given away, so I don't become as big as the house!

My only change is to refrigerate the dough for a bit, helps to form the logs."
