These cookies are prepared similarly to how biscotti are (but they're baked once, not twice). The dough is shaped into flattened logs before going in the oven, then sliced into cookies after being baked.

The good news is that cookie mixture is perfectly spiced. The bad news is that, and this is obvious when you consider the quantity of flour & butter, you only have enough dough to form one log which provides you with about a dozen cookies and they need to be twice baked.
