This recipe tasted excellent and I definetly would make again. However, there we a few problems that I encountered with the directions. First, the dough looked a little watery to me so I added a extra 1/4 cup of flour. Also, the baking time looked to long, so I cooked mine for 8 minutes and they came out perfect. I also added 1 cup of chocolate chips just because I love chocolate.
