Would not make this again.
Batter is too runny; needs more flour and less sugar. Cookies are like meringues -- very airy, but have a nice flavor. Next time I will try a different recipe. 3 stars

Would make this again.
I followed recipe carefully. Added sugar slowly and beat well after each addition. Used parchment paper-did not grease pan or paper.Did not burn at all. Came out slightly brown on bottom. Actually, they were perfect. Light and airy inside. Yield was 5 dozen. 5 stars

  A cookie baker in Ky.  Oct 23, 2003
Would not make this again.
Too much sugar and not enough flour ? No time set for baking. Would not come off the cookie sheets. Consistency of sand.What more can I say. 1 star

Would make this again.
This turned out great! Since we don't have hickory nuts in Canada, I used chopped filberts. Also, no baking time was shown. I found 16 minutes with 3 layers of foil under the pan so the bottoms wouldn't burn worked just right. 5 stars
