This recipe needs a little bit of work. The cookies didn't come out as well as I would have hoped, I think a bit more baking soda? Really great idea.

I tried this before I gave these as gifts. When you beat the egg and butter nothing happens except that it almost looks like it curdles. Doesn't there need to be some sugar in this part of the recipe?
