I just tried making these cookies before giving them away in jars and they came out tasting great. They do come out better though when the balls are compact, so putting them in the refridge. before is helpfull other wise they fall apart when taking them off cookie sheet.



I got one of these jars as a gift, made them the same say, and absolutly loved them! The only differene in mine was it called for me to add 2 eggs, not 1. I can't wait to make these cookie again!



This has taken the spot as my all time favorite cookie!! These are WONDERFUL!!!
