I have completed this week's challenge and have a few tips for those attempting the X-Cookies.
The recipe is quite straight forward and easy to follow - so no problem there. However, the recipe makes an astounding five dozen cookies, which is too much for even the most sugar toothed family. I would cut the recipe in half if I were to make them again.
As well, don't be afraid to really knead the dough. It is one of the rare recipes where the quality of the pastry will not be damaged with over-working.
I look forward to seeing every one's results on Sunday!
And, as always, Happy Baking!
