Reviews for White Chocolate Cookies
"Although the taste of these cookies was good, they were not pretty. Even after refrigerating overnight they still spread out too far and burnt around the edges. I used parchment paper, they came off nicely, just wasn't what I was looking for."
"I have never baked or cooked a recipe from Taste of Home that I did not like.......but this one takes the cake for horrible!!!!! The cookies are flatter than a pancake!!!!!! I did everything as said, and still horrible!!!!"
"Awful! The cookies spread all over the pan and wouldn't bake normally - they were burnt on the outside and raw in the centres. I'll never make these again."
"These cookies were good. I baked them for about 10 minutes. I think I will keep looking for a better recipe."
"my family really liked these cookes. easy to make & tastes yummy"
