We really liked these cookies. The flavor was really good. So easy to mix up and bake. For us 20 minutes too much. Our cookies turned out too brown. I am going to make another batch and take them out sooner.

These beauties are reminiscent of short bread. Fast and easy to make. I made them into smallish balls and pressed them with a fork (like peanut butter cookies). They took 20 minutes to bake and the bottoms were perfectly light brown. Did not have green sugar crystals. This is a keeper!! Thank you for sharing Ellie! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
