MY REVIEW

Hello,

What I did was after making the whole batch, I put it in the fridge for 15 min. I thought it would be easier to work with since it was a bit runny.

Hope it helps...

I followed the recipe exactly, and my cookies came out flat on the pan! They all ran together and it was horrible! What did I do wrong?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 1, 2011

I made these for a get-together at work and everyone LOVED them! I used no fat, low salt popcorn and only baked them for about 12 minutes so they weren't so crisp. They turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!
