These are lovely, nice & crunchie just how I like my biscuits (cookies). Followed directs exactly, I added the choc chips, left overnight in the fridge, rolled and baked in the morning. The first tray I cooked for 20min and the cookies had burnt bottoms (so they went to work with me the next day as samples - everyone enjoyed them), so the next couple of trays I only baked for 15 mins - Perfect!! Great Cookie, thanks for submitting VirginaGeek.
