I was extremely disappointed with these cookies. Even my husband, who usually inhales any cookie without thought, said, "What is WRONG with these cookies?"
I followed the recipe exactly but they just did not work. First: the texture. After refrigerating them for 5 hours, after rolling them out they became very sticky and gooey. It was impossible to cut shapes out of them. Finally, I rolled the dough onto my cookie sheet and baked them. When they came out of the oven I then cut them with the shapes, which worked just fine. But then we tasted them.
Second: Flavor. They do taste a bit carmel-y, which is nice, but they have a bitter aftertaste. I also was leery about adding the cornmeal to cookies, and my gut instinct was right. Cornmeal should not be in cookies. It gave them a gritty feel. Yuk.
Maybe I did something wrong. But I don't really want to try the recipe again to find out!
