My Mother makes these every year, delicious, the hardest part is getting them to "cap" any suggestions? 5 stars

Would make this again.
Absolutely wonderful.....but you need to use Extra large eggs, and I don't mean the ones you find at the grocery store. Best way to find them is at a Dairy or egg farm. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
this recipe is awful. There is no way you can mix these ingredients and not have to use a cement mixer to incorporate the flour. I wouldn't EVER make this again--and I'm part german!!!!!! 1 star

Would make this again.
Previously I used a recipe similar to this one but I like the simplicity of this one.
I love this cookie but usually have to plan ahead to make it because of the beating time and the overnight resting. It was our family favorite. The first time I made the older recipe I used a hand mixer and proceeded to burn out the motor.(That was years and years ago.)Now I use a heavy duty mixer just in case.
