Wow, these came out really well. I was worried because the dough was much stickier than usual and did not rise very much at all, perhaps because in my haste I put in half again as much sugar as called for. Whoops. But they are so tender and delicious, illustrating again The Chocolate Lady’s Second Law of Pastry:
The uglier the dough looks while you are rolling it out, the more beautiful the finished product will be.
The first law is cool hands, warm heart.
