In reference to the above review, I believe that it would be safe to assume that the oven temp. listed in the recipe is celsius. 180 celsius is quite a common baking temp. for cookies here in Sweden! Hope this helps.

These cookies tasted good but the baking temperature was all wrong. You can not cook any cookies in 180 they will never cook. I did the first batch like the directions and I have to cook them for 45 minutes to get brown. I put it on 375 and they cooked in 10.
