      WOW!!! These cookies have it all. Easy to prepare - I used a good cognac - not to sweet, with a great butter cookie taste with just that something differant that folks can't quite identify. Nice and light for that after dinner snack. I followed the recipe exactly and the timing was right on. I baked half and froze the second half to fix for company next week so will be anxious to see how they turn out after freezing. This is one of those cookies that would even be easy to prepare for the short notice get togethers that you need to put together fast. I'll be using this recipe often. Made for ZWT #6
      Made these for a 2nd time and this time made a vanilla glaze to frost adding 1 tbls of cognac to it and sprinling with sugar - YUM

      So far this Tour I've tried two different cookie recipes and they've both been some of the best I've ever tried. For this cookie, I substituted Clear Creek Distillery's Pear Brandy. Easy and quick to make! Crisp, sweet but not overly sweet. I skipped the chilling part and they turned out fine. A nice end to our Greek/NA*ME meal this evening. Reviewed for ZWT 6.
