It's a divine version of old-fashioned tea cakes and so delicious! Thanks, Guinevere and Grandma Lulu.
Someone should have said that you really should use a piping bag for this dough! It was very sticky and the cookies were very big and not cooked all the way through! I finally sniped the end off a baggie and piped them onto the cookie sheets. The taste is good,but not pleased with instructions.would recommend using a piping bag or a baggie with the corner cut off.
