Would make this again.
If you like this type of cookie, you'll love these ...and they are easy to make, double the recipe, you'll eat half on your own! Used this recipe over the last 3 years.
Merry Christmas!

Would make this again.
I will definitely make these again because they are delicious. I was disappointed, though, because they did not come out of the oven as balls rather they spread and came out like a typical cookie. I specifically wanted a ball shaped cookie. But, as I said they are very tasty. 4 stars

Would not make this again.
These did not hold their ball shape in the oven. The taste is fine but I wouldn't make these again when I can make Bourbon balls that I know will turn out the way I want and don't require baking. 4 stars

Would make this again.
These melt in your mouth and instantly transport you back in time to how you wish your grandmothers cookies had tasted. 5 stars
