    Among the four different holiday cookies I baked, those starts are the top favorite for everyone. We have a lactose intolerant family member, and he specially appreciated this recipe! In my oven, 9 minutes at 165 C gave me the perfect outcome.  -  17 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
