I followed the directions exactly and they turned out good. They DO spread out A LOT so take that into consideration. I needed to let mine cook over 15 minutes before the edges browned. I used sprayed foil on my cookie sheets and they came right off without sticking. Alteration: I put a thumb print in half of mine and filled it with strawberry jam - those tasted very good.
These are so easy to make and taste so rich! I used 1/2 marg. and 1/2 butter. I had to leave in the oven for 15 minutes b4 the edges started to brown. I had to learn to remove them VERY carefully from the pan! I had a couple casualties, which my DH snapped up. :) I used parchment paper and they were still sticky on the bottom, not dried on, but sticky and very fragile. But after letting cool, they were fine. Similar to a lace cookie that my dad makes each year; but I like these better. These would be good with coconut mixed in or almond flavoring. UPDATE: Do not use any "light" margarine! It has too much water in it. To salvage them, I crumbled the dough onto the sheets and baked them longer and they came out like basic garnola.
Wow! Simple and delicious. I could not stop eating these. My son called them granola cookies. I flattened out the dough ball a little bit because I was getting a little yummy & chewy bump in the middle, but we love the crispy edges more. This way I reduced the baking time to 12 from about 15 minutes. My dough balls were kinda big. YUMMY! Thank you.
Hmmmm... when Anme says "spaced pretty far", she's not kidding. I thought my small balls were spaced far enough apart... but they ended up forming into one, large, cookie-sheet sized cookie (it came off pan easily, but with that amount of butter, that wasn't shocking...) I cut them into circles but they just fell apart. I basically ended up with bits and pieces. I should have used 4 cookie sheets for this recipe, instead of two. Also, the amount of butter in this is extreme, to say the least. I wonder if it would turn out with less butter. The pieces tasted yummy, but everything tastes good with a half pound of butter and a cup of sugar in it.
These are delicious! Just like my grandmother used to make.
These work best with a silpat and perforated pan. Makes all the difference in world! These are my son's favorite cookie.
I did not care for this recipe. They did not flatten out like they were supposed too. They crumbled too easily. I made these cookies with another recipe and they worked out perfectly. Do not use this recipe!!
I made a 1/2 batch...twice !!! Fabulous recipe, best cookie ever. Thanks so much...
very nice! there isnt too much flavor, but they are delicious. i made the dough two days before and baked them in 1 inch rounds on a silpat mat for 12 minutes. they arent too thin, theyre nice and crispy. thanks!
