These cookie rounds taste just like the store-bought cookies. Delicious and super easy! Do not overbake, take them out while moist and just set.

Like the other review this was now very sweet. I added 2 cups of powder sugar and it was still not sweet. If I make them again I will add 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and cream together with the butter and still add 2 cups total of the powdered sugar and increase the water to 5 tablespoons to balance it out. I would want to keep the light crisp texture that Milano cookies are known for; the powdered sugar gives these cookies that texture. Read More

The powdered sugar didn't give near the amount of sweetness that I would have hoped (even the chocolate chips didn't give it enough sweetness). Don't be deceived by their pale appearance mine were done in an easy 8 minutes. Dare I say it? They were bland. Read More

I just made this recipe with the changes suggested by rebeccasatc. And now that I've just tasted one I definitely think that they're nice and light and the changes rebeccasatc suggested were spot on. I would however cut the almond extract in half the next time I make them. Whatever brand I used may have a stronger flavor than others but I found the almond flavor a little too overpowering in each bite. Otherwise great tasting with the changes! Read More

A lot of the reviews say these are bland but I think they're perfect. Milano cookies aren't overly sweet they have a light texture with a bit of sweetness. For me these are bang on. Read More
