Top Review by sprue

these cookies turned out very flat and formless, i kept adding flour to perk them up and by the very end batch they were almost ok. the taste was great though and i used the formless crumbles of the cookies for the top of a cobbler and it turned out pretty good, just added some nuts and a little more cinnamon.
