    Altered ingredient amounts. As it was my first attempt I halved the ingredient amounts and also used syrup flavoured porridge oats. 12 minutes in a pre heated gas oven at mark 3 was not long enough I would say around 18 minutes.  -  20 Apr 2010


    Delicious cookie!! I followed the steps and ingredients exactly (only a little less salt), and my cookies didn't spread too much. Just scoop heaping spoons on the baking sheet, don't flatten them, and they will be perfectly baked after 12 minutes :-)  -  31 Oct 2011


    These were sooooo good and easy to make. May reduce the salt a little though next time  -  28 Feb 2011
