Very tasty! Made the dough yesterday and froze it overnight - slicing was easy peasy.

December 2015Great tasting cookie. Made dough one night, chilled overnight, sliced next day and baked.I did not have problems rolling it out between wax paper. Took to a friends for dessert. She asked for the recipe.

I have been baking cookies for many years and never had as much trouble as with this recipe. My dough was chilled but when putting it between the floured waxed paper, it still stuck to the paper and came apart. I must have done something wrong as these other reviews sound wonderful.

I looooove these cookies. Cut them with dental floss to keep that nice round spiral.

This is a rich, crisp and beautiful cookie! Followed directions exactly. Cutting the cookies very thin and using a ruler I was able to have 39 cookies. Although this recipe is a little time consuming it makes a very attractive cookie. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home magazine my suggestion is to follow the directions exactly. This recipe will not disappoint.

Good recipe. But it does not make 3 1/2 dozen. More like 1 1/2 dozen. Just a heads up

I made this cookies for Thanksgiving and they were such a hit everyone requested them for Christmas too. I wound up making at least five batches over the holidays. Easy to make ahead and slice and bake when ready.

I've made these cookies for the past three years (tomorrow will be the fourth) in a row and they are great! Really easy, and really good! Every year I'm asked if I will be making these!
