MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2010

"I loved the ease of this recipe! Instead of rolling the dough into balls, I used a small cookie scoop. The consistency of the dough was perfect for this and the scoops pressed down into nice round circles with the sugar-coated glass."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 15, 2010

"Butter, sugar, vanilla and flour. What could be easier? The simple taste melts in your mouth. I dipped half of the cookie in the chocolate and set in on waxed paper to harden. I like the smaller cookie recipes so I won't be tempted to eat them all!"
