We spell Bryssel! Try 2 1/4 cups flour and 200 grams butter. You can also roll the cakes in coloured sugar. It's the usual. Read More

This recipe did NOT work. I thought a pound of butter in a recipe this size sounded like a lot. The first tray of cookies burned before the time frame given. There after they did not burn but they crumbled horribly when handled. It was hard to lift them off the pan without breaking and the ones that did come out whole crumbled when lifting out of the container. It makes good crumbs but not a recipe for anyone who want to make nice cookies for gifts. Read More

Actually I had no problem with these cookies. The dough came together very nicely. Baked they had a nice crumbly/soft texture. I gave them to a couple people last year as xmas gifts and they were hits. Read More

I didn't care for this recipe. There is a LOT of butter in the cookies and doesn't hold after chilling. The cooking then either burns them or won't cook. Read More

I made this cookie because the picture looked so scrumptious even though the reviews were hit or miss. I wanted the challenge. Made as written. When I tried slicing the frozen roll it did crumble and so I JUST LET IT SIT ON THE COUNTER A BIT TILL IT SOFTENED UP. IT WAS PERFECTLY EASY TO SLICE! No problem. I found that it needed 10 to 12 minutes and the taste and texture was great. Not to sweet. The only thing I would do different is to mix the nuts into the dough instead of around the edges. Less messy and more nuts. This cookie is definitely worth making. Do not let the other reviews scare you! Read More
