If you look at the recipe it says 36 servings which would mean 2 cookies each.

@tonyalao Both are right. It makes 6 dozen cookies or 36 servings of 2 cookies each. If you look at the nutrition facts a serving is 2 cookies. hth

These sound good but I'm confused about how many cookies it makes - it says 36 servings over the ingredients list, but at the end of the recipe it says 6 dozen (?). I'll guess I'll have to make them to find out!
