Yesterday I spent way too much time making these eight (yes 8) cookies. It took about 2 hours to mix the dough, cut them out-one at a time, bake them in 2 batches and wait for them to cool. I found the recipe on Pinterest and changed it a wee bit using a sparkling sugar instead of powdered. As I was mixing them I was sure that the consistency of pie crust dough was wrong but when I made a lump with my hands and rolled them out they really didn’t require refrigerating for an hour. They baked in 12 quick minutes. The house smelled like Christmas. The flavor and texture are divine. But all that work for 8 cookies (and a few round flat ones I formed with my hands). Maybe I’ll use a much smaller cookie cutter next time.
