    Replaced the almond essence with extra vanilla, but absolutely gorgeous - especially straight out of the oven. Freeze in balls to cook direct from frozen for 15 minutes = instant homemade cookie gratification!  -  12 Jan 2013


    Not my favourite ever cookie recipe, but decent. Leave the batter to stand for a while otherwise it's too soft to properly shape into balls and they spread too much. I think if I made it again I would add an extra 50g of flour.  -  27 Oct 2013


    These were very bland. I can taste nothing but sugar. They have no flavour whatsoever. I accidentally made these, thinking they were the same recipe I made before. Big mistake. The BBC good food ones were what I've made before and were perfect!  -  23 Oct 2017
