    3. I made these tonight and they flattened out really bad. They tasted delicious but just did not keep their cute little shape when I baked them. Any idea of what I may have done wrong?

      1. Thank you for the feedback!!
        There are a couple of reasons why cookies turn flat while baking...firstly make sure you beat butter and sugar JUST UNTIL blended..the more you beat ,more the cookies will deflate after you take them out of the oven...and if the dough is too soft ,the cookies may spread out quickly while baking...so after you shape the cookies place them in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes ,before baking..that way it wont spread much...also make sure your oven is at the right temperature....Hope these tips help!!

    4. I have never made cookies before and am wondering how to beat the butter and sugar together. Do you soften the butter first? What is the best way to do that? And is there a substitute for the butter for dairy free? Thank you!

      1. Creaming butter and sugar together ,incorporates more air into the mixture ,thus making the cookies lighter in texture.To start with,take room temperature butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat well using a wooden spatula or a fork until it turns light and fluffy.You're done when you don't see any streaks of butter.
        Try using margarine / shortening instead of butter ,but I am not sure of the results though.Do let me know okie...
        Happy cooking

    6. Can margarine be substituted for a dairy-free version. My boyfriend has Crohn's disease and has a gluten/dairy-free diet. Trying to find cookies for the holidays so he isn't left out.

      1. Butter adds lots of flavor to the cookies..so it is an essential ingredient in this recipe....to make it dairy-free,try and use butter flavored shortening /margarine..

    8. They taste good! Thanks for the great recipe! I used xylitol instead of sugar. Worked also well. Of course I had one after they came out of the oven but they taste much better when they are completely cooled down.
