When I first looked at this recipe, I thought it was too complicated. But, they are delicious, and sort of an old-world taste. If they seem to daunting, try halving the recipe, but try them

I found these cookies time-consuming to make. My family didn't enjoy them at all.

This recipe was time consuming, but i found it worth it. If you like more of an "old fashion cookie" then i think you'll enjoy them too.
