    These were good! My first batch was a little flat, so I added a touch more flour and that did the trick. I let each batch cool for 5 minutes before moving to serving tray and had no problems with cookies falling apart.  -  24 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This cookie created conflict. They were so good I wanted to share them and made up a plate for my husband to take to his parent's house. But they were so good he kept insisting I only put a few on the plate and made it clear that he would not be held responsible if they were gone before his family got some. Just fantastic.  -  18 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make cookies constantly and have a huge recipe collection of which my husband and son have all tried through my persistence. My son has become so fussy he won't eat cookies anymore but for some reason when I sent them to his College, he and the kids raved about them and asked for them again (and these were one kind out of 16 kinds that I have sent through the months). I will be making this recipe often in the future now that I have found a favorite. Thank you.  -  05 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
