"These cookies did not spread. They were very light but eating them was like putting a handful of feathers in your mouth. I'm not sure what could be done since we're working with Cornstarch. Maybe an egg (eggwhite?) may have helped with less cornstarch. After a few minutes you notice a bad after taste too. This is the 3rd recipe I've used from this recipe book "Best loved cookies and bars" and none of them have turned out as it says. I'm done! Back to Betty Crocker!"
