The only thing I did differently with this recipe was roll the balls of cookie dough in my hands with additional loose flour. This seemed to help keep them from flattening in the oven. I have no idea if it really did, but my second batch came out much better than the first when doing so. :)
We're heading out to go to Christmas Vigil, so I only have time to post a yummy picture.
Definitely a favorite the season. :) Enjoy!
