This recipe was wonderful. It really grew on us and tasted even better the second day after the flavors melded some. It also gave me something to do with the yolks after I make egg white cookies!! I took the tip of cutting the sugar to (2/3 of the original) and it was great. ighly recommend trying this one. Read More
