I can't believe I have to be honest here but this is the worst thing I have ever stuck in my mouth. I was soooo disappointed when my 2 am snack turned into a nightmare. I do have to admit though that the fluffy consistency of this cookie reminded me of french madeleines. Now that doesn't mean that it tastes anything like madeleines but I did change the recipe to make myself a madeleine knock off. I will post my recipe changes after I've made them and let you all know if it turned out good. It's shocking that there is even one person out there that thinks this cookie is great tasting. I guess if I had no taste buds I might find the cookie good too. Read More

I had hoped this was THE recipe I've been searching for...but sorry to say I agree with those that say it is bland and not very sweet. I tried to salvage it by adding other flavorings coconut and almond to no avail. The cooky was also dry so I made a recipe of tollhouse cooky dough but did not add the flour or baking soda called for. Mixed that with this recipe's dough and at least got an eatable cooky. A lot of work to get 1 good cooky Read More

About half way through making these cookies I found that they were too bland and so I put cocoa powder and powdered sugar in them. It made them much much better. Read More

These cookies are rather bland. They need something more I wonder if maybe something was left out of the recipe. They are the right texture and they do not go flat but they don't taste right. Read More

I made these for my boyfriend because he just had a root canal and they are very soft in the middle! We both loved them. I brought some to work and they became renamed as "muffin tops"! Read More
