Help !!! I tried this recipe on Friday last and left it to chill . Unfortunately I did not get to bake them on Saturday , I am thinking of doing so today Sunday, but that makes more than two days in the refrigerator , could any one say if this dough with the eggs incorporated would be safe to consume after so many hours in the refrigerator . With thanks .

Looks good, I would probably add something to pep them up a bit, lemon rind, dried fruit etc, even cocoa powder for a choc version

These cookies were so disappointing. I'm not sure what I did wrong, since I followed the recipe to a T. The texture was off, they didn't rise at all and were generally a let down. Oh well...
