Would not make this again.
This recipe is horrible. The taste is fine, but the dough was a hassle to work with. I'm not sure I'd make them again. My sister and I spent two hours on them just trying to make the dough workable. I rated them 3 on sheer merit of the taste. 3 stars

Great recipe! These cookies were very tasty - my kids helped make them and also helped eat them :)
I think maybe Diana who said these were horrible maybe messed up the recipe...

These were absolutely the most HORRIBLE tasting cookie I have ever made! Don't waste your good ingredients. There is no way to make these better, even if you cover them with frosting... they still are the worst! DON'T MAKE DON'T MAKE DON'T MAKE !!! 1 star

These look lovely! I have been looking for some to make for my mum, and being a German student, the German name caught my eye. I think that these are great and very christmassy. The name translates to "Christmas biscuits" in German. :) 5 stars

YUM!!! These are great! I sprinkled light brown sugar on them before baking and powdered sugar as they cooled, because that was all I had. Forgot to buy toppings, but the powdered sugar turned out to be an excellent touch. It looks like snow on my Christmas tree-shaped cookies and they complement the orange flavor. O tannenbaum, O tannenbaum, how tasty are your branches! Next time I will make them green. 5 stars

These are wonderful.. Easy to make and they hold their shape so nice and firm. Everyone keeps coming back for more saying hmm what is in here. This is a real keeper. 5 stars

Love, love, these cookies. Sold them at our church christmas bake sale and they went fast. 5 stars

Would make this again.
These cookies were DELICIOUS. I used a little extra flour. I would also like to point out that Kekse means cookies, while Kuchen means cake, in German. 5 stars

Would make this again.
I'd just like to say, that these cookies are great! As a young German student I can also state that the name of the recipe literally translates to Christmas Cookies. (Weintachs= Christmas, Kuchen= Cookies) 5 stars
