These cookies are delicious with a lovely texture! Made as directed but did not roll them into logs or sugar them. I made rolled drop cookies and crosshatched the tops. Bake time was spot on for my countertop oven. This recipe is perfect for the two of us. Thank you for sharing this repeatable recipe Dienia!
