Reviews for My Kids' Favorite Cookies
"Very tasty cookies. My granddaughter helped me and she loves sprinkles so that was an addition I made. Otherwise I stuck to the recipe. I stored them in an air tight container and they remained soft and delicious. I'll definitely be making these again."
"Great cookies. I made them with my grandkids. There were lots of jobs they could do."
"Just made these and they're delicious. I made them exactly as directed and flattened slightly as stated using a fork dipped in flour. I'm guessing the cookies in the photo are made extra large because you only get 12 chocolate rectangles in each candy bar; 5 x 12=60 pieces. There's not enough chocolate to put two on each cookie and not enough room on each cookie to put more than one piece. I'll be making these again at Christmas!"
"Very tasty, very easy and I ended up with exactly 5 sheets of 12 cookies."
