"Sorry ladies. When I submitted the recipe, I specifically stated that the parchment needs to be sprayed with cooking spray prior to baking, but for some reason someone at Taste of Home failed to include that part. Deena"

"The parchment paper was impossible to work with in this recipe. The cookies stuck so badly to it, that I had to just pull the top part of the cookie off to use it, leaving the entire bottom half on the sheet. I have not yet tried the end results, but I would not make them this way again. I don't know how simply greasing the cookie sheet would effect the cookie, but it might be worth a try."

"I made these for a meeting and 2 women immediately wanted the recipe. They can be somewhat sticky to work with. I rolled mine instead of "molding" them on the tray! They were great! Thanx ~"
