needs work! try it if you want to but trust me your not going to like it
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.
