    CraftScout's Note:

    This is one of my favorite recipes from TOH. It is easy, it is cheap, and it is DELICIOUS! I think these are my family's favorite cookies. I have even made a batch with pasteurized eggs for making cookie dough ice cream! :) The cook time is for one batch in the oven. The dough freezes well; simply roll into a log and wrap in plastic wrap. Then just slice off cookies and bake (from frozen) according to directions.

      These turned out great. I've been on a Nilla Vanilla Cookies and milk craze lately. I think I'll be able to save money and get a better tasting cookie by making this recipe. They are so easy to make and I always have the ingredients on hand.

      Couldn't believe how amazing and addictive these cookies are. I made them as a base - halfway through the baking time, I put chopped up Starburst pieces on the top of them to melt. A great way to use up the Easter candy I probably wouldn't have eaten. I'd love to sit down with a bowl of the dough and eat it all day! :-)
