Would make this again.
Good but dough crumbled, I added one egg to mixture, formed balls, rolled in sugar then flattened with glass. Perfect. 5 stars

Would make this again.
These came out pretty good and they were most definitely easy and quick! I added an extra half cup of powdered sugar and imitation butter flavor. I also used granola instead of nuts. Very tasty! 4 stars
