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.

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.

The batter was runny, like others have said. But I tell ya, try thumbprint cookies with a swirl of chocolate frosting instead of a kiss. Fabulous!!! Try it!

Not a good recipe. Cookies did not form. The dough just melted in the oven and made a mess. Boo.

I wish I would have read the other reviews first. They tasted allright but they were completely flat like pancakes.
