Too rich and not in a good way. I even tried adding bananas (as one of the reviews said) but I didn't like it. My brother (who eats anything) said it was pretty good. You should be the judge!! Read More

I picked this recipe because it doesn't have eggs in it and I wanted to bake it with my toddler. The flavor was too strong almost bitter and the texture made it hard to chew. Maybe I did something wrong but I won't be making this again. On the plus side the dough didn't taste as bad as the finished cookie so it would be good if you want that raw dough taste without worrying about salmonella! Read More

This recipe is great. It can also be made with Butterscotch Chips and Walnuts or Vanilla Chips and Macadamia Nuts. Read More

It's a really good brittle. I wanted cookies but had no eggs - this was a good alternative. Didn't blow my mind but tasty just the same. Read More

This recipe surprised me. I thought it would just taste like crunchy cookies but the butter and sugar caramelized a bit which gave them a slight toffee flavour. I didn't change anything in the recipe except to add a bit of cinnamon just because I felt like it. I cut it into bars with a pizza cutter as soon as it was out of the oven and it broke nicely into pieces when it cooled. I made it because I didn't have eggs but I will choose to make it again because it is yummy! Next time I'm going to see what they taste like with brown sugar instead of white. Thanks for the recipe!

This is a very simple recipe with nice end results. I used half whole wheat and half all purpose flour. I used salted buter and should have adjusted the amount of salt because it was a little too salty for me. so if you use salted butter either reduce or skip the salt in the recipe. I used toasted pecans and it was wonderful. I think I'll make this again with unsalted butter and possibly try almonds or walnuts to see which I like more. Read More

Legitimately a better cookie dough recipe than it is a brittle one. Read More
