    Hi All,

    I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to reproduce the texture of any of several commercially made butter cookies like 'Leibniz', "Le Petit Ecolier", etc.?   I've tried a bunch of different flat butter cookie recipes, and none of them even come close to the crisp almost cracker-like texture of these cookies.    Most of the recipes I tried come closer to a shortbread texture, which is pretty different.

    Any suggestions to make such a cookie?

    Cheers,

    Cello

    It always reminded me of a more refined, richer graham cracker.

    Yeah you know I had a similar thought.   I think trying a graham cracker recipe with white flour might be worthwhile.  I'll give it a go.
