1 1/4 cups
packed brown sugar
2 1/2 cups
I found the dough too crumbly and with a second batch only used 2 cups of flour. I rolled the dough in about 2 inch sausages and put it in the fridge for 2 hours, then cut the dough in 1/4 inch thick cookies. They came out perfectly and melt in your mouth!
I made these using the suggestions of another cook in the reviews, using only 2 cups flour and rolling into logs ,chilling then slicing and baking.
Thet were quite good and my husband who is a dunker liked them.
My only concern was with the cooking time,35 to 40 min? Can't be right. I just watched them and removed them when they were light brown, but a novice might try baking them for that length of time..... Not good.
These cookies are very simple. If you don't want to roll out the dough, form it into small balls and flatten them with a glass. The cookies are very plain and crunch, so I think they taste best when dipped in coffee or cocoa.
I followed other reviewers suggestions and the cookies came out perfectly. I only used 2C flour and I used light brown sugar and cooked at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. After cooling for a minute or two the cookies have a great crunch. Warning they are very addicting!
The dough was so dry, it was crumbly. After molding into a ball and refrigerating, it was like a rock. I added butter as I worked with the dough. After they baked for much less than the specified time, they were hard as a rock. They obviously require less flour!
This was a quick and easy dessert I put together in just a matter of minutes. I didn't make these into cookies. Instead, I spread this out in a greased 15x10 inch pan and baked it for about 20-25 minutes. I added an egg yolk into the mixute to hold it together. I spread some homemade chocolate sauce on top and sprinkled it with walnuts. My son went nuts for this. Good recipe Robin.
Good cookies, I find making them thick and cutting baking time keeps them from being too cruchy. I put a pecan in the middle and drizzled ganache over them, very pretty.
I made these a week ago. It is as though there are ingrdients missing. They tasted great but were terribly stiff and hard. I thought by being called shortbread they would melt in my mouth. I am very disappointed.
