I made these cookies based on the recipe in the Dec 2019 Christmas cookie magazine issue. Essentially the recipe was identical except only all purpose flour was used (total amount of flour was the same). I found the taste was delicious but was disappointed with the texture. The cookies spread out too much and were flat, not like the picture shown in the article. I added an extra 1/4 cup of flour to the dough, chilled the batter overnight, rolled it into small balls and placed in the freezer for 10 minutes. After baking for 9 minutes and cooling, I was very happy with the resulting shape and texture of the cookies.
