Spoon Cookies from Dec. '05 Gourmet

Has anyone made these? The essay that accompanied the recipe annoyed me a little bit (I read that recipe, there's no way it took three days to make a single batch of cookies), but this year I decided to make them. Got the dough done, which wasn't nearly the frenzied ordeal described; and will bake/assemble today. Just wanted to get some feedback in case anyone's already made them.

  1. Yes, indeed -- these were the big hit of all the new cookie recipes I tried last year. Enjoy!

    1. I thought they were good, not great. Didn't live up to the hype.

      1. I believe I ate the entire batch myself. The flavor is subtle and very good.

        1. I made them as well and I agree, it didn't take three days. However, they did grow on me as the days went on. For some reason, they really are better several days after baking.

          1. I missed those but I alswys save the Dec. Gourmets so I have it here beside me. MAybe I'll get to them tomorrow.

              I thought you'd locked up the oven after the cookie marathon?
