"I have made these cookies twice now. I wonder if any of the recipe is a misprint. There is SO much butter, that the cookies never really set up. They remain soft and pliable, very flat. The butter almost oozes out of them. You can't touch the cookies without coating your fingers in butter. I think this could be a good recipe, but I question if the ingredients are correct."
