    There is a typo in this recipe. It should say 1 3/4 cups sugar. These are great cookies.

    These were pretty bad cookies. The dough was dry and not sweet enough. When I baked them, the edges did brown, but they just got very hard and didn't have nearly enough flavor. Very bland. I will not make again.
