Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I just finished making these cookies. I just finished making these cookies. The taste is good, like shortbread BUT when dropped and baked they do not flatten at all and are balls when you take them out of the oven. The second batch I flattened. Much better. I did make one change to the recipe. Rather than use candied cherries I used dried cranberries. Wanted the bit of tartness with the dates.
