This was an EXCELLENT recipe. Although there is no way on earth you can get 3 dozen out of it, these cookies were SOFT, MELT IN YOUR MOUTH, DELICIOUS, and took me only 20 minutes to prepare and BAKE! Perfect for on the go cookies. I rate this on a scale of 1 to 10, definnentely a 10. Keep up the good work, but watch the number you put in as a yield.
I didn't care for these cookies at all. I made the recipe as directed. I scooped them onto an ungreased cookie shhet using a 1 tsp ice cream scooper and baked them for the stated 10 minutes at 400F. What started as a ball turned into a 1/4 tall very spread out blob with burned edges. After letting them cool 10 minutes I used a metal spatula (I tried one that will flex and one too thick to flex) but I was unable to remove the cookies from the cookie sheet without them falling apart. They are very bland and taste like raw flour. I will definately not be making this one again.
This recipe was very easy. I had to adjust the amount of flour to 1 cup because the batter was too thin. All in all a very good cookie, my guests gave me compliments.
I have a hard time figuring out how the recipe made 3 dozen. The recipe did not specify the size of the final product and even after doubling the recipe, I had a hard time squeezing 3 dozen out of it.
I also revised the recipie. I tried greasing the cookie sheet and the cookies burned around the edges. They also were too runny. Using a UNGREASED cookie sheet, dropping dough by rounded teaspoon fulls, and baking at 350 degrees for 7 minutes worked great! With Christmas time they were great with colored sugar sprinkles worked well also.
A very good cookie. If you like your butter cookies a little softer this is a good one. But, BEWARE! They will be gone quickly! I got it to make three dozen (well, 2 1/2 but the kids "licked" a lot of the batter) small cookies. I used a small spoonful to drop them onto the sheetl.
These were very, very good. And so easy to make! I ended up with about a dozen average sized cookies, but they'd make about three dozen cookies a bit bigger than a silver dollar like the butter cookies that come in a tin. They're good plain, or with a dollop of jam, or covered in sugar. Soft and yummy. Would reccomend to anyone.
In fairness to the recipe owner, the original recipe is for 3 dozen cookies but you must set your own serving size to 36 servings to get ingredients for that much. I tried to do 2 dozen, without greasing the pan, at 375 degrees for 8 minutes since my gas oven cooks hot and fast. The bottoms and edges burned while the centers were under cooked. :( I used sprinkles for the topping. The 3 stars are for the yummy flavor of the few that cooked just right - very light and not too sweet! Would be yummy with tea!
