Don`t worry it will look like a cookies when it comes out of the oven, but will crumble very easily. I followed the directions, but I will next time mix the crumbs into softened ice cream (so to make it like cookies and cream). I also heated a spatula so slicing the ice cream was easy. I`m so tempted to go to the freezer for seconds! Yummy!!!
