Rated 1 out of 5 by from I made this recipe to make flower cutout cookies I followed the direction but the batter was crumbly I was wondering where was the moisture like when you bake other cookies add an egg or something I bake from scratch a lot something is amiss in this recipe I would not recommend it.
