I would definitely make this again but I put two cups of flour instead of one and a whole cup of brown sugar. This made the recipe a lot better. Read More

This recipe has too little flour for the amount of butter it calls for. I would recommend adding one more cup of flour then the cookies wouldn't spread so much during baking. Good luck. Read More

This was the worst recipe that I have ever tried. They came out looking like pancakes. I have tried the recipe twice and both times the same thing happened. I wasted my time and my money. It was just a very bad recipe. Read More
