I'm confused. The 5th paragraph says "Add both of the melted chocolate into the other half the creamed sugar in the mixer, mix until well combined."
There are no ingredients for chocolate.
Maybe this part came from a different recipe??

We never tried to deep fry these cookies, so have no idea if you can do so or not. If you do deep fry them, please let us know how they turn out.

On the Christmas Viennese Cresant Cookies, does anyone else see that there is a step missing in the directions? It's says "mix flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Divide in half. Well, that's the only reference to the flour, etc. then it goes on about what to to with the rest of the ingredients. There is no mention about the flour etc. and dividing it in half. It doesn't say when to add the flour to the rest of the ingredients. If anyone has the rest of the recipe, please contact me or post them. Thank you.
