My personal opinion on these cookies?
They are quite easy to make and taste quite well. The taste they remind me very much of vanilla, which is a reason that the recipes – from the missing nuts here – are very similar.
But the dream pieces so well that the hype is understandable therefore created?
Without wishing to offend anyone, I myself can hardly explain it to me. The biscuits are certainly tasty, but not soooo good for me that I would praise her in the sky. Maybe it is because I had too high expectations in this regard by the many contributions or just because I'm more of a chocolate type.

Best of all, it bakes the dream pieces after forming your own opinion, because tastes are obviously differ.
Maybe it creates this delicious biscuits in your Keksolymp?
