Wonderful flavor but when I was making this recipe, the dough was way too soft to shape into a roll. I had to add a whole cup of flour before it was firm enought to shape.

Very good! don't make though unless you are committed to the time to follow the directions. Trust me...they turn out as a pan of Goo otherwise. I did salvage my pan of Goo as "Recovery Cookie...

We just love making cookies that have a wonderful flavor, and these are great!
