These cookies are good...I just have a few things to mention. The recipe didn't say how big the logs had to be, I made 4 about 1 in. thick. Also when I first cut them i thought i was cutting them 1/4 in. thick but 10 min. in the oven they were all burnt. I limited the time to about 6-7 min. and made them bigger..about 1/2 in. thick. These "new" ones came out perfect! Everyone that tried them has liked them. I myself, like the chewy kinda cookies, these ones are harder, but still good. Oh and I didn't have dark corn syrup, so I used light (since it was only a tbls.), but they still came out good.
