    These are excellent. I have made these so many times need to copy another page of this. I do leave these on the cookie sheet for a minute or 2 or they fall apart.

    So quick and easy and tasty also. When they were warm from the oven, they tasted like brownies. This will make a nice holiday treat. Made for 123 Tag. Another keeper!

    We all very much enjoyed these. These were so easy to put together too. Love the idea of the vanailla too. Not to much, but just enough. I agree with the other reviewers on how they are soft and chewy too. Made mine a little bigger and ended up with 42.. Made for 1-2-3 hits.
