These were EXCELLENT cookies!! I had no brown sugar but needed to make cookies and these turned out excellent! I have no whole wheat flour though so I just used all white. (On a side note, I also made a batch where I added 1 cup of Peanut butter and 1/2 cup more flour.SO GOOD!)

This receipe did not work for me! Batter was way too dry. Added a splash of milk to bind the mixture-which it did-then baked at stated temperature and time. Was a runny mess!

These were yummy even though I made mine all wrong. I didn't have any vanilla or plain flour so I used bread flower and added some brown sugar in place of some of the white sugar. (I really wanted cookies but did not feel like taking a trip to the store.) I also halfed the recipe just in case it turned out horrible. Since this was my first time making cookies from scratch I was quite impressed. I also made mine a bit larger so they baked about 10 - 12 minutes but they were great!!! I can't wait to try again with all of the correct ingredients.
