Excellent recipe and delicious cookies!
Ignore the bad reviews. I’ve been making these cookies from this recipe for many years. They are the best if you want something light. Classic tea cookie. My absolute favorite.
I made these cookies exactly and added tsp of vanilla they looked yummy but were not good at all... the texture was weird and it seemed as thou the cookie was missing something. I am thinking there is too much corn starch. Don’t waste your ingredients or time.
I have Never been disappointed in any recipe from Taste of Home - ever. I was very, very disappointed in this one. The texture was awesome but there was No flavor at all to these cookies. I ended up dusting them with powdered sugar but shouldn't need to do that.
Made these today. Excellent! ALMOST the perfect cooking we were looking for. I used King Arthur Measure-for-Measure Gluten Free flour. The only other change was to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I also used the slice-and-bake method rather than making balls, and it worked fine. I frosted some as an experiment and prefer the ones with frosting.
These were very good! I made a half batch and used a half tsp of both vanilla and almond extracts. I used the wet fork technique on these cookies, which worked very well, and sprinkled with red sprinkles.
The cookies had a dry weird texture. Could the cornstarch amount be wrong????
After I made I saw I could have added vanilla..the cookie tastes good but a little dry.how can I stop this dryness..
Have made these cookies for 30 years. We call them Christmas melt aways. I have always topped then with a little powdered sugar frosting with Christmas colors added in the frosting. That bit of frosting adds just a bit of sweetness to the cookie! Delicious! A family favorite!
I made a half-batch and used the ProTip mentioned by an earlier reviewer: I froze the dough for easier handling. You'll need to thaw it to allow softening to add the fork prints. Also the ProTip review suggested cutting them 3cm, but this is much too high in my opinion. They don't flatten out as they bake, so unless you want very tall cookies, I prefer to slice them 1 or 2 centimeters. They come out soft and delicious either way.
