    I agree--very strange measurements. I quadrupled the recipe (used 2 eggs) and got 53 cookies using my larger (2 Tablespoon(?) scoop. I don't think I' dirty up the dishes to make only a single batch! They are great cookies, though, and I will definitely be making them again!

    Great recipe, awesome cookies!

    Very strange measurements though, makes a tiny batch of cookies. When double it makes a normal small batch of cookies. I would make 4 times to get a normal double batch of cookies. Not sure why it was scaled down so much.
