Autumn Leaves

Simple and delicious! Not as flat as I imagined but who cares. I took suggestions and lowered the temp to 400F and placed the rack on the 2nd from top position. 7.5 minutes was perfect, they were just about to burn at 8 minutes. Used a small cookie scoop. Rolled them into balls and dipped the whole thing in sugar. I skipped the water step. I flattened them slightly before baking. Next time I'll try rolling in cinnamon sugar. This recipe is a keeper! P.S. Use a parchment lined sheet. I wouldn't never bake anything on an unlined sheet unless you like scrubbing.


These are very much like what my husband's grandmother used to make. To keep the bottoms from browning too much we bake them on the third from the bottom rack instead of the middle one.


I cannot believe that more people have not tried and/or rated this recipe. I would give it ten stars if I is so good!!!! I think I make them about every other week and every time I bring them somewhere I have SEVERAL people ask for the recipe. These will definitely be a favorite for anyone who tries, in my opinion. Thanks for the recipe:-)
