My son and I started making these cookies for a class project (he needed to make something from Austia). These cookies sounded easy enough for an eleven year old. We sifted the flour, added the sugar, then added the nuts. Then it said to blend in all but the two tablespoons of the butter. The recipe only listed two tablespoons of butter and that was for the filling! How do the cookies stay together?
