This is a GREAT recipe....the best I've found! The previous comment states that they "crumble"....the crumbly texture is what makes these cookies so good! I've tasted others at Christmas gatherings that are "doughy" which ruins the taste for me.

I love this recipe --it tends to crumble though. I lost it and am glad to find your website to get it again.
