I am so glad these cookies turned out so good..after I started to measure out my ingredients and then beat together the sugars and butter.I discovered I did not have any eggs...but did remember I had 2 egg yolks in a cup covered with water...so I use those with a little more water added(about 1/4 cup water altogether.. so in they went with the water and vanilla.. they turned out very nice...Ilove it when things just fall into place-don't you?
