Yum! Mine took a good 12 minutes to bake. I had to return one batch to the oven, but they turned out fine. It made 50 cookies for me - I used the smallest cookiy scoop I had. The chewy/crispy texture is great and acting on other reviews, I added 1.5 teas cinnamon, .25 of nutmeg and .25 of cloves. I also used a little whole wheat flour and subbed 1/4 c splenda for the brown sugar.
