Delicious,i only got 24 average size cookies out of the mix but that was probably my mistake as i'm just a beginner! - 10 Oct 2012


After 15 minutes in the oven and five minutes cooling on the tray I ended up with soggy uncooked lumps of dough. - 23 Aug 2013


They don't look overly exciting so added some melted chocolate on top. Quite tasty but I was concerned at the amount of salt and think I was right- definitely too salty for my taste! I used butter rather than margarine. - 08 Feb 2016
