This recipe is freaking good. first time doing it and it's divine, not a joke. But reading the recipe i knew it will be sweet so i reduce the sugar to 1/4 white and 3/4 brown but next time i'll try 2 cups of brown sugar so there is a bit more balance. but over all, the best recipe i've tried *it so good that this my first time writing a review for a recipe

This was perfect for a snow day. Had all the ingredients on hand in abundance and it was in the oven in no time!
