1 1/2 cups
sifted all-purpose flour
unsalted butter, softened
I totally disagree with the negative reviews - I'm rating 5 stars not because these are amongst the best cookies I've made but they certainly are great for the prep time - those who said they are too crumbly may have flattened too much or overcooked - stick to about 3/4 inch - they should just be light brown on the underside - I finished mine with milk and icing sugar icing and sprinkled fresh orange zest on top and they were a nice light treat - also, I used regular butter, not unsalted - butter cookies really need some salt. GIve these cookies a chance - I hadn't read the negative reviews before making them or I would have skipped the recipe.
The cookies are ok but the dough crumbles very easily and doesnt tast very good.to give the cookies more flavor sprinkle them (while there on the sheet) with cinnamon asnd sugar.
Dont ever try this recipe!!!! The cookie crumbles and spreads very easily and has no taste at all!!! I would never make it again!
very good not crumbly at all used regular butter and very much worth the little time you spend making :)
light yes, but they are crumbly and fall apart even as you eat them. there is a decent butter taste but definitely not worth making again.
No flavor, not worth your time even if its easy to make.
This is really similar to "polvorones" which are really supposed to be really crumbly. As for a taste issue I rolled them up into more of a ball, made an indent in the top with my finger and filled it with the small circular sprinkles. and it adds both a subtle taste that works well with the butter and a interesting texture.
I liked the cookies but like other reviews, the had taste issues. So when the cookies came out of the oven I cooled them off and added frosting. It gives the cookies more flavor as well as color.
