  1. In fairness to the recipe owner the original recipe is for 3 dozen cookies but you must set your own serving size to 36 servings to get ingredients for that much. I tried to do 2 dozen without greasing the pan at 375 degrees for 8 minutes since my gas oven cooks hot and fast. - Read more ...
  2. I didn't care for these cookies at all. I made the recipe as directed. I scooped them onto an ungreased cookie shhet using a 1 tsp ice cream scooper and baked them for the stated 10 minutes at 400F. What started as a ball turned into a 1/4 tall very spread out blob with burned - Read more ...
  3. I made the recipe exactly as directed. I did not have problems with the batter being too thin as other people stated and I used a melon baller so I got 36 cookies out of the recipe. The problem was that the cookies don't taste good. Both my kids made faces. They described them as - Read more ...
  4. I also revised the recipie. I tried greasing the cookie sheet and the cookies burned around the edges. They also were too runny. Using a UNGREASED cookie sheet dropping dough by rounded teaspoon fulls and baking at 350 degrees for 7 minutes worked great! With Christmas time they were great with colored sugar sprinkles worked - Read more ...
  5. These were very very good. And so easy to make! I ended up with about a dozen average sized cookies but they'd make about three dozen cookies a bit bigger than a silver dollar like the butter cookies that come in a tin. They're good plain or with a dollop of jam or covered in - Read more ...
  6. A very good cookie. If you like your butter cookies a little softer this is a good one. But BEWARE! They will be gone quickly! I got it to make three dozen (well 2 1/2 but the kids "licked" a lot of the batter) small cookies. I used a small spoonful to drop them onto - Read more ...
  7. This recipe was very easy. I had to adjust the amount of flour to 1 cup because the batter was too thin. All in all a very good cookie my guests gave me compliments.
  8. I have a hard time figuring out how the recipe made 3 dozen. The recipe did not specify the size of the final product and even after doubling the recipe, I had a hard time squeezing 3 dozen out of it.
  9. This was an EXCELLENT recipe. Although there is no way on earth you can get 3 dozen out of it these cookies were SOFT MELT IN YOUR MOUTH DELICIOUS and took me only 20 minutes to prepare and BAKE! Perfect for on the go cookies. I rate this on a scale of 1 to 10 - Read more ...
