    Very tasty and pretty cookie. Step five should have add dry mixture to wet mixture added to it. I doubled the recipe because they are a lot of work for just 12 cookies. I also rolled my cookies in sifted confectioners sugar. It looked so nice after they were baked. Maybe it is because I doubled the recipe but I would bake them at 350 for more like 12 minutes.
