Delicious cookies! I chilled the dough to make it easier to handle, then rolled it into small balls and flattened with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.

These are excellent with tea or coffee. I agree that chilling the dough, rolling it into a ball and lightly flattening makes these better.

GOOD!!! VERY QUICK AND EASY..
