"Great cookies! They turned out nice and soft, I did have to reduce the cooking time to 9 mins."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2014

"Simple and delicious - reminded me of the old-fashioned ones I had as a kid. My cookies flatten out - unlike the picture."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 3, 2014

"I've been making snickerdoodles for near 45 years. I have always chilled my dough for a couple of hours and have never had my cookies look like the little balls pictured here. Ball shaped snickerdoodles seems a little offputting."

MY REVIEW

"Didn't turn out quite picture perfect, but they were soft, sweet, and yummy!"
