Recipe by Claire Tannett
Tasty little cookies. This makes a large batch that you can give away or store because they keep well.

This recipe just does not work! I followed the directions to the letter, but I didn't come out with cookies. There is no specific baking time, so I baked them for about 10 minutes per batch. However, they do not hold together at all when you try to remove them from the pan. All I ended up with was a bunch of crumbs and mush. I was so disappointed to have wasted my time and ingredients on this recipe. I wouldn't recommend this recipe to anyone. The only reason I gave it two stars is because the resulting mush doesn't taste bad.
