Directions

"I made this for my family, and I didn't even have to melt the candies on top, and they wouldn't leave them alone!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2012

"These are delicious cookies, popular with everyone. I have a question, though. Have you other bakers noticed this cookie gets a little flat, or did I do something wrong?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 17, 2012

"Although these are tasty now that they are done, I made them exactly as the recipes directs except I made a double batch in my KitchenAid mixer and refrigerated it overnight with the lid on. Oh my, it was like concrete when I got it out the next day to make them. Had to have my boyfriend chip the batter in chunks in order for me to work with it. What did I do wrong?!"
