"these are easy to make and taste great"
"These were wonderful and so nice and soft just the way we like them.. The only problem, which really wasn't a problem, was that they came out small and puffy. I used the cookie scoop so next time I will just make them bigger :-) Everyone loved them and I know I will make them again. Yummy!!!"
