The cookies are fantastic, if you make a small adjustment to the recipe. Reduce the flour to 1 1/3 cup and increase the butter to 1 1/2 sticks. The resulting cookies are crisp on the edge, chewy in the middle and have the perfect amount of moistness.

Mine turned out a little flat, but it was most likely my fault. They tasted great though! I'm definitely going to make them again.

I love Abuelita for making hot chocolate. I would have never thought of using them in a cookie. They are absolutely delicious. It's something different from your usual cookies.
