We made these cookies for Santa. The recipe makes a good cookie airy and moist. These were not too sweet as most mall cookies tend to be. I reduced the stars because the baking instructions produces a flat cookie that takes 20 minutes to cook but does not produce that crispy edge I like on a cookie. I suggest to not reduce the temperature but rather reduce the time to 10 to 12 ,minutes for fresh cookie dough and 15 minutes for refrigerated dough.
