"I tried this recipe... the dough was too dry and crumbly after adding only 1/2 cup of flour. I eventually got it mixed in and formed a ball. When I took it out of the refrigerator it was solid as a rock! I might try them again, and see if I was just having an off baking day."

"This recipe is delicious. I will be sure to make them for Christmas and probably before. I think they would be good with coffee and ice cream."
