About this recipe: I first made these cookies two years ago in my food technology class and I have made these all the time because they disappear fast. I also love to put a small handful of chocolate chips in the mixture but that is completely up to you.

Mine came out nasty, dont know what i did wrong - 22 Sep 2014


Omg, these taste amazing, and added chop chips to! Only prob i had was the fact that even though i spreaded the ball fairly far apart they melted into one big cookie, what did i do wrong? I assumed as they were ball shaped they wouldnt flatten quite as much, but as i said taste amazing, so who cares what they look like eh, and the mixture makes loads! Thanks. :0) - 21 Dec 2013
