These were the first cookies that I've made that turned out tasting like cookies. I will say that next time I am going to chill it for a half an hour to make it less drippy batter.



As we eagerly ran to the oven to see what Valentine treat awaited us, we soon were overcome with great disappointment. Behold, the cookies were flat, greasy pancakes. Not even good pancakes. We followed the recipe to a tee. What happened? We don't understand how these could have a good rating. They taste, look and sound terrible!!!



Sprinkle cinnamon on them before you stick them in the oven to give them a bit of extra flavor. I've shown this recipe to several friends and coworkers and they have ALL loved it!
