Very simple but good.

This was a flop for me. There was no way it would've formed balls -- the dough was very wet. I dropped it by teaspoons and got about twice as many as the recipe said it would make. They spread out quite a bit on the cookie sheet, and burned to a crisp in about two minutes less time than the recipe said to bake them. It seems like maybe there wasn't enough flour (like, about twice as much might have done it). Think I'll try it again with double the amount of flour, and submit a correction. Meanwhile, I'm hoping someone else has tried it and can give me some suggestions. Frances
