I never comment on any recipe that I try. But this time I simply have to. Worst recipe.I am an semi-experienced cook, and I followed the recipe to the letter, but the ingredients were off, the explanations quite summary. The dough was sticky and impossible to roll into balls. No explanation : should we put more sugar in the dough ? should we cover the hands with sugar ? should we put the dough in the fridge to harden it before to be able to roll it into balls ? and if so for how long ? I used the teaspoon to measure my balls, and I barely managed to make 40 cookies. As for the pignoli, 3/4 of a cup no way, I had to keep adding up pignoli to my bowl. More like 2 cups and for only 40 cookies.Sorry, but this recipe was a disaster
