These were a nice surprise. They were not too soft and not too crispy, just a nice in-between. DS helped me make these and we had great fun. I used margarine and got 28 cookies. I did find that if I didn't immediately remove them from my well-greased cookie sheet, they began to stick and become difficult to remove.
