    More of a cake than a cookie. Are you sure it's meant to be self raising flour?  -  03 Jan 2013


    Me and my 3yo daughter made this earlier, the recipe turns out more like a cake than cookies- which I enjoyed more or less but she wasn't impressed...  -  05 Sep 2015


    Definitely not what I'd call "classic cookies". Really disappointed as I've used all my ingredients, promised my daughter cookies, and got sort of flat cake-biscuit things!!  -  22 Jan 2015
