    I am on the fence with these cookies. The flavors are nice, however, they are a crispy, flaky cookie, not a soft cookie. I prefer soft, chewy cookies.

    These cookies are really good and melts in your mouth. This is the first time I ever baked cookies and everybody loves them. I am going to make another batch for the New Years Eve. I am so glad I found this recipe.

    These are good. You could add the cinnamon chips they now have, they taste great and a lot of cookies call for a cup of butter for the whole recipe divided out isn't that much, just share your cookies. It's the holidays, enjoy life and live a little!

    For those who think 1 cup of oil is excessive, look at the amount of cookies it makes. This is more than double what a standard cookie recipe yields. So don't be concerned about the oil...just half the recipe and feel better about it. These are yummy! Grammajo

    This will be my 3rd year making them since I found them. This is the cookie my family asks me to make first. They melt in your mouth!
