Dough was very hard to work with. Cookies came out way too crispy. I made them to send to one of my sons. I hesitate even mailing them out. SJS9

Dough not easy to work with. I wanted to use right away. I would recommend adding peanut butter also. Cookies kind of dry.

Yummy! I made them for a party and everyone raved about them. FYI ~ If you do not want to freeze the dough, bake each batch at 350 for 11 minutes.~ Theresa
