My cookies came out great. I haven't made cookies in over a decade and this is a simple basic cookie recipe. I added a pinch of salt and a couple of drops of almond extract to my eggs and my recipe was scaled down to 12 servings instead of 48. The dough is very soft so I molded mine by hand and put pineapple jam in the center. They were very yummy shortbread cookies with jam. Read More

It was too soft for what the amount of ingredients called for and even though I left it in the fridge overnight it was almost just right but when using cookie cutters the dough stuck to everything no matter how much flour I used. This is definitely not for cookie cutters. Even after moulding it in circles the kids ate only one and didn't like it. Read More
