    Not great, sorry...would not make again. Many better recipes on this site to turn into really great cookies. Sometimes easy is not best.

    Well, based on other comments, I was careful to chill these thoroughly, but when they baked, they did spread out a bit too much to fit into the cute egg carton format that was displayed. I was still able to use the little decorated paper cups, but they had to be opened out wider. I had 36 cookies, so the balls I made were probably just a bit smaller than what the recipe said, but they were still too big. Also, I tried to do both baking sheets at the same time. Don't do that. Put one back in the refrigerator while the first one cooks on the middle rack. There wasn't any indication of when these were "done" and I left mine in a little too long at 20 minutes. (Checked at 18, but didn't know what to test for.) So less time is better than too much.

    I tried this recipe twice. The taste is fine, but it wouldn't maintain the ball shape. I may have mixed it too much?

    I've made these for years and we all love them. However, I do use 1 1/2 cups finely chopped pecans and bake them at 325 for 30 min or so. I've never put them in the frig and they've always come out round.

    I used to make these all the time & everyone loved them! Then I moved & either lost or misplaced the recipe. Thanks for retreving it for me! Maybe the other people with lower stars didn't make them correctly, cause if you would have loved them too!

    These were among some of the best Christmas cookies I've ever made! They were gone within minutes. Even my picky 12-yr.-old liked them! I added some white chocolate chips and they were delicious, however even after putting them in the refrigerator, they didn't come out round.

    I agree that you end to make them pretty small as they do lose the roundness a bit during cooking. I also found the dough very dry and crumbly so next time may add a bit of water to help shape them. They were easy to make and do taste good.
