"Mmmm...just like Mom used to make! A soft, scrumptious, sugary delight! These are perfect for the children on a crisp afternoon after school or for the adults (after the kids are in bed) in front of a nice cozy fire. Ahhhh, the memories!"

    Steller recipe. I added tiny chocolate chips which I also recommend. DELICIOUS! I scooped mine with an icecream scoop and took them out exactly at 8 mins and they were perfectly soft and chewy.

    A little dry, but a glass of milk can easily be the solution. Very tasty!

    I of course helped n did everything that had To do with heat... but this was very easy for my 8yr old to make... and turned out delish!! :) my son found his desert dish he's making for thanksgiving or christmas and super excited to share with the rest of our family considering he was actually able to do all except put them in the oven and take them out :)

    Delicious cookies and very easy to make too. I added a chocolate wafer on top of each cookie immediately after taking them out of the oven. Yum-yum!!! Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for a great group of 4th grade students who deserve a treat from their library lady.
