Interesting in a good way! My daughter loves them. The apple is different and really good. I also did teaspoon size (better for little hands) and got just over 20.

I liked this recipe, but I would suggest changing the drop size to teaspoons instead of tablespoons, as they were a bit too big and instead of 20+ I got only like 15
