This was a BIG hit! I made it for an event at our school and everybody loved it including my DS, which is a great sign! I lined my tray with parchment paper, my cookies slid off very easily. Mine took 12 mins to bake. Thank you, littlemafia, for sharing this wonderful recipe, definitely will be making these again.
