    these wafers are excellent, easy to make, deep flavor, really short. I kept mine in the freezer until i was ready to bake...sliced and baked, what could be easier?

    These are simply sinful. With all that yummy butter, they just melt in your mouth. I made them for gifts last year; they were so good we ate a lot before they could leave our home. They are very crumbly, which prevent them from traveling well. They are fabulous, beautiful and exceedingly different.

    My son's Indian neighbor gave us these exotic cookies a few years ago. I had never tasted a shortbread this good. The earthy flavor is ecstatic. I looked for this recipe for a couple of years, and finally found it at myrecipes. It's a treasure. Like others said, the cookies are crumbly, so I store them in the freezer. But the flavor is well worth the delicate handling.

    Oh my God! I am soooo excited. I have been trying to find this recipe for 2 years now! During the holiday season of 2007, I "thought" I saw this recipe in Verdugo Magazine (L.A.) but after many internet searches today, 2 yrs later, I finally found it, and see that it was in Sunset Magazine!!! Good gravy, what a nut I am! These cookies are so delicious - I made them at Xmas 2007 and I am glad to finally have this recipe back! Savory, spicy, crackery ~ do try them!

    These were awful! I followed the recipe and they turned out very crumbly. Definitely NOT portable - they would all break. The taste was off too. I had to throw the whole bunch away.

    While I have difficulty keeping these types of dough cool enough to roll well, these cookies are so good! I'll be making them again for my father-in-law this Christmas.
