Would make this again.
Delicious cookies, however the dough was far too soft for me to roll into a log. I added a little extra flour which didn't make difference, so I ended up making drop cookies out of the dough instead. Again, a very tasty cookie! 4 stars

Would not make this again.
I was disappointed by this cookie, it was crunchy, but not as flavorful as I was hoping it would be. 3 stars
