Excellent recipe!!See all activity
I followed it to the letter and no need to reduce the flour at all (I HARDLY TOUCHED THE DOUGH! ) thanks to THE BEST HINT i read from another user on food.com (either on this recipe or another one i am not sure):
*ROLL THE CHILLED DOUGH BETWEEN WAXED PAPER
*TAKE OFF THE TOP PAPER and CUT OUT THE SHAPES (puzzle like) WITHOUT MOVING OR HANDLING THE DOUGH AT ALL
*~PUT THE PAPER & DOUGH ON A BAKING SHEET IN THE FREEZER
*TAKE OUT AFTER 10 min AND THE SHAPES ARE SO EASY TO REMOVE WO BREAKING! ONTO A BAKING SHEET STRAIGHT INTO THE OVEN!
I did all kind of shapes even the mini stars came out perfect!! The taste was delicious!!
Many thanks for sharing this recipe!
