I've made these cookies for 2 years now, and this year will be the third. Everybody is always asking me to make these cookies this year, and of course I will. The only problem is that the dough gets crumbly so what I do is microwave butter and rub it on the dough. That does get a little annoying, but the end result is definitely worth it. Anyone of any age can make these cookies. Also, I felt that the brown sugar needed to be added a little more because the first time I made it, it wasn't sweet enough, and it tasted a little funky. So make sure it is sweet enough. Overall I really liked it.
