Cool facts about nutmeg:
- It goes well with cheese sauces
- Back in the day, the only source of nutmeg was the Banda Islands -- a small group of islands in Indonesia that also has good snorkeling
- There's something called nutmeg poisoning, which may cause delirium
I didn't have a blender, so I melted the butter a bit too much in an effort to make the mixing easier -- I think this made the cookies tougher than they should have been. I also took one batch out after 10 minutes and left the other in for 2-3 more and the consistencies were totally different -- biscuit crunchy v. crispy and soft in the middle. I like crunchy myself, but I'm not totally sure how they were intended.
Anyway, if I were to do them again, I would add crushed almonds to this recipe to make them more crumbly and maybe dip the tops in crystally sugar.
