I halved the recipe for 18 cookies.. very NICE. MOIST cookies that the 4 of us enjoyed for a mid-day snack. Definately a hit her with the kids. The cooking time was right on the button. Savver here. Made for PRMR tag..

Yum! These are truly delish, and my son was ecstatic to make "chocolate milk cookies" LOL. The texture of these is super, and the ovaltine just adds a little extra something to the already terrific buttery flavor of the cookie. I halved the recipe and got 21 good-sized cookies. I also pressed my dough balls down a bit halfway through baking as they didn't seem to be spreading at all. Thanks so much for posting, Jean; this is absolutely a keeper! Made for ZWT 7, for the Vivacious Violets.
