I'm a very beginning cook. In fact, I avoid cooking at all costs unless I have to. I needed to make cookies for a class I'm taking, so I found the easiest recipe I could and made it. I have to say, I had no problems with the dough being too runny. I read the reviews and added a TINY bit of extra flour like some people suggested. It was fine. As soon as I added the dry ingredients in, it thickened and was perfectly normal dough. I just didn't let the butter melt while it was "softening" in the microwave, and I stirred in everything as much as I could. The cookies are a little "pancakey" as someone else said, but really still very good. My family loves them.

It could be just me but these cookies were a bust. I reveiwed the recipe several times to make sure I had done everuthing correctly and it seems as though I did. The dough turned out too runny and needless too say it turned out worse after baking them. I had to throw away everything. The recipe is very easy so if you have ingredients to spare try it out and please let others know how it went. It could have been a fluke in my case...maybe someone else will have better luck.

This is the best cookie recipe I have ever come across. Every year for Christmas my friends and family ask for a tin full of them. The only thing i changed was the amount of milk the recipe called for. just start off with a small amount if you need more than add more, and I actually added my own twist, instead of covering them in just sugar try cinnamon too it give the cookies a sweeter taste

I said to put on ungreased cookies sheets and they stuck. There wasn't enough flour in them. It took awhile to doctor them up so I wouldn't have to throw the whole thing out. Walk away from this one.

These cookies werent the best ever, but they where extemely easy and quick to make. The dough was fine after I left it in the freezer a bit.

These were absolutely delicious! My husband and I wanted a snack one night, and I tried to find a quick and easy sugar cookie recipe that would only require what I had sitting around. This recipe was perfect. I used self-rising flour instead of all purpose (and left out the baking powder)...they turned out so soft and not overly sweet. I was a bit worried about the dough being so runny, but I just used a teaspoon and made drop cookies, and it worked. I will definitely be making this for family and friends.

this recipe is not written very good. if you take out the milk and add 1-2 more eggs then you should gt a better result. the milk makes it too soft of a dough and the oven spreads them out too much so they burn and you need more eggs to fluff them up!

The cookie batter was very sticky. I put it in the freezer, but it didn't help. The cookies ran together in the oven, and didn't turn out well.
