Very easy cookie to make. I used the convenience of a bowl and electric mixer rather than mixing directly on the counter-either way, it’s a very soft, buttery dough, rolls very nice and smooth, and the result is very lovely. These also bake very fast, about 8-10 min. Catch them before they turn golden so they are a bit soft when you bite your first sample. Enjoy!
