    I like to sprinkle them with turbinado sugar, it adds a little sparkle. Love the recipe.

    I followed the directions completely and piped them out using a large open star shape tip. They looked good however during baking in the oven they melted together loosing the shape. They looked like a round blob. So disappointed as it was not easy to pipe out correctly. It took all my strength to get the dough through the tip. They taste good but looked disappointing to say the least. Ny the I'm a bakers daughter and have baked all my life.

    Perhaps it's best to not tie one's identity to what profession our family members have. We are responsible for the outcome of our own recipe.

    I agree with the other comments, the recipe is missing something because after mixing and shaping the cookies they lost the shape in the oven and. DO look like flat diarrhea cookies… I think is the corn starch . Regardless it was a terrible 😞 outcome.

    I used baking powder instead of cornstarch and it kept its shape pretty well! I also used a bit more butter, so it wasn't as dry. The piping went horrible because it was my first time using one but they tasted amazing!.
