Brilliant! These cookies are delightfully light and sophisticated. I did (as most reviewers do) modify the recipe and really loved it! I first used only 75% of the sugar called for but it really affected the texture (not as crisp). I used 1 1/4 C sugar, 2 TBS lemon zest, 1 TBS chopped fennel seeds, and 1 C of chopped & roasted pistachios, about 1/2 c chopped & roasted pistachios to top. The result was light, buttery, crunch, flavourful, and aromatic. The fennel's not for everyone but those who like spices will adore these. I also prefer then in smaller, delicate pieces. Thanks for such a unique (and yummy) recipe!
