    This did not work - the mixture spread out over the tray and was far too greasy. I have since looked at other similar recipes and think there is not enough flour in this one - would probably add another 100g flour  -  05 Feb 2014


    I made the mixture into 10 balls on greaseproof paper and cooked them for 15 mins at 160 (fan) and they were perfectly cooked. They came out as perfect cookie shapes once they had spread in the oven. My only slight disappointment was that they were more like a cake consistency rather than cookie/biscuit. Still delicious tho!  -  22 Apr 2017


    These cookies are a crowd pleaser, and easily modified! To keep cookies from cooking flat, make sure to cream the butter with the sugar (don't melt your butter!) And if you have time, refrigerate the dough before baking, and between batches  -  29 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
