Cindy: These lacey cookies smelled wonderful. But, they were too sweet and greasy (used olive oil instead of butter).
Chris H: This was batter nightmare disguised as a seemingly plausible recipe. I baked the resulting mess anyway for mediocre results that most of the taste testers (victims) said nice things about (hey it's free cookies).
Gail G: Pretty, almost tasty, but I am now drowning in an oil pit of despair. Cut the oil in half, or go back to your best friend butter.
Tina C: This recipe lacked important details, making it hard to follow. I would only try them again after a major recipe overhaul.
E.M. Teramoto: Disaster, disaster, disaster! The taste is fine, but I’ve made fried chicken less oily than these cookies.
Sue Rudkin, Raleigh, NC: Disaster cookies, look what happens when sugar, honey and olive oil are heated and never combine. On the bright side, a lovely flavor, I have fresh cardamon, and the squirrels are getting fat in the backyard!
Kathie: I had trouble mixing melted sugar with olive oil and in the end a very stiff batter sat in a pool of the oil. I baked some anyway so this picture of not too edible Florentines is just for show!
Sam P.: The batter was difficult to work with, and made more than indicated in the recipe. To boot, the promising orange and cardamom flavors didn't shine through.
Hana: This is a pretty great combination of flavors, but the batter spread a lot in the oven and I ended up with giant cookie globs instead of nice round cookies. The cookies turned into a sticky (but delicious) mess after a couple of days of storage.
