I made these cookies today and brought them to work. The girls loved them and I just brought home an empty container. A few notes that I made: my bake time was 15 minutes each cookie sheet (I do them one at a time on my stoneware sheet) and my batch yielded 3 1/2 dozen (I use a cookie scoop). I love using the parchment paper - makes cleanup a breeze! Thanks for posting this wonderful, go to cookie recipe.
