I tried to make this for my granddaughters birthday, so thank goodness I started early, this recipe is terrible!!!!! I followed the directions exactly and the dough was very dry. My recipe said to spray the foil lined pan with vegetable oil, which I did, but the cookie pieces just slid off the foil. Then I prepared another pan and did not spray it and the cookies still just fell off the sides. Besides, the dough being dry it certainly lacked flavor. I think I will try another cookie recipe and toss this one. It's a great idea though....
The dough was very crumbly and dry. I added milk to moisten it so it would form a dough. The cut dough would fall apart very easily. At one point, I through it back in the mixer and added more milk to make it more doughy. I got it onto a foil-lined bowl and cooked it. As I was carefully removing it from the oven...it fell apart with half of it ending up inside my oven. My family tasted it...dry and bland. Now, I need to go my oven.
