I should preface by saying that I do a lot of baking and I followed the uncomplicated recipe. However only use this recipe if you don't mind flat cookies. These cookies have a good taste nothing spectacular but they don't look that good. I like my cookies and food in general to be very appealing to the eye. I was hoping these would be lighter in color (maybe I should've used a recipe w/o the brown sugar) and that they would have been more formed and not so FLAT. I tried baking them on a rimmed and non-rimmed sheet and on a Silpat mat all with the same results. I even tried refrigerating the dough so it wasn't that either. These are just okay. I am still looking for something that tastes and looks fabulous. Thanks for the recipe anyhow. Also I agree with reducing the amount of salt. A teaspoon is a little much. Read More

This recipe is Great!! I read several reviews first. several people said the cookies came out too flat. I made sure I used cold butter sticks and put them in last. I baked the cookies 375 for 8 minutes and the cookies were not flat at all. They came right off the pan. these cookies are so good. you have to have a glass of milk with these. Great Recipe!!

Great recipe. Cookies won't turn out flat if you are careful to not melt the butter - just soften it. Read More

These cookies are fantastic! They were gone in no time. I cooked at 350 degrees and took them out as the edges were getting golden brown. The kids loved not only helping to make the cookies but also loved eating them! Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

These were a hit at the Pre-School Picnic! They are colorful and tasty! They also traveled well when packed in a cookie tin with the layers seperated by wax paper. Read More

I made these as instructed and they turned out great. I did make sure the dough was cold before cooking to help with spreading but had no issues at all with them. Read More

Good standard cookie recipe. I might use just a tad less salt but the end result was pleasing to my niece who helped make them. Read More
