I’m very sad that my first review is going to be incredibly negative. These were awful. I read the reviews and let the butter get completely soft, it was sitting on the top of the stove with the oven on and was partially melted. The "dough" was a crumbly mess and I could barely shape it into balls. I baked the cookies for 8 minutes and they did not spread. Instead I had clumps of tasteless dough that were very brittle. I’ve made many other cookie recipes and never had a problem. There is no way this recipe is correct, there has to be more wet ingredients to bond the dough…and how does a cookie recipe not have salt? This recipe was a big waste of ingredients.
