Anyways, about the cookies. You first make a basic dough (making sure not to overwork it!) and then roll it into logs. After Dorie's signature three-hour refrigeration period :D , you brush the logs with egg yolk and sprinkle on coarse sugar. We did one log red and the other green. Then you cut thin slices and bake them. All done! Some of ours were thinner than others, so they got... uh... "crispy". Let's leave it at that.
