MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 15, 2012

This was a good little cookie. I made a half batch since 7 dozen cookies seemed like a lot. Used my cookie trigger scooper that measures 1.25" across & it gave me 2 dozen decent sized cookies. Didn't alter the baking time. Great texture. I'd never made cookies without eggs before & this was a real treat.
