Very tasty. I used a 1" melon scoop to portion these onto the cookie sheet. After the first tray I decided to flatten the dough slightly before baking to achieve a better cookie appearance. Otherwise they look a little like drop biscuits because they don't spread out much, if at all. I only baked half the batch and froze the rest of the pre-portioned dough in a zip top bag. Defrost the dough balls for 15 minutes or so and bake...they come out just great! Next time I will prepare a double batch of dough since it freezes so well. Super convenient to have cookie dough that is ready to go!
These are great!! This was the first baking idea I tried off of Zaar and probably was a lot of the reason I wanted to join up and learn more. I first made these in late November and now it is Christmas Eve and I have made my umpteenth batch. Friends and family can't get enough. I tried honey roasted chunky peanut butter in the most recent batches and found it to be a nice variation. You really can't mess this one up- a winner of a recipe- Thanks for sharing!!

Hey there!~ My name is Crystal. I am 19,and living in Florida. I really love to cook,& bake all the time for my family.I just get so much enjoyment out of it! There is just something about the great aroma throughout the house when you bake something,creating special memories in the kitchen! A little more about me: I am a strict vegetarian,(almost vegan!,heh)but of course my whole family is not,so I cook just about anything! Other than cooking-I like to read,surf the net and create art. My favorite websites are: www.ebay.com & www.witchvox.com (I'm wiccan) Of course,the Zaar has become my favorite website! I love how friendly the people are and how interactive this place is!
