Top Review by Chef Dudo

This yealded 41 cookies and not 12 as the recipe says. Don't know how big they must be made to only give the stated amount. Mine were normal size. They did bake in exactly 10 minutes. They do not spread, the way you drop them on the baking sheet, that is how they will look. They flatten just a little bit. The comments I got from my colleagues (the "judges") were: sort of dusty, a bit bland, a bit too sweet. Some gave them two stars, others four stars, but the four-stars-givers were very much in the minority. Personally I thought they were OK, liked the crunchiness but indeed, they were a bit "dusty". Thanks for posting. Made for My-Three-Chefs, June '08.
