I followed the recipe to a tee. So soft and chewy. Wonderful flavor. The only thing I did different was to cut the recipe in half. I had no issues with making these. I will be making these again but the whole batch next time. Thanks MaMere for such a wonderful recipe. Made for PAC 2010

These are interesting cookies - I wondered if they needed more flour but I went on as listed. The result was much more like a cake batter than a cookie dough. The cookies, once baked, are very flat, since the batter was so liquidy. I baked them on parchment paper, and they wanted to stick to the paper, even once cooled. Taste-wise they are good, but I think I'd try adding more flour if I make them again. Thanks for sharing!
