"I tried o make this recipe. The dough never got firm and when I tried to bake it, the cookies all melted so that you only had one big cookie sheet covered with dough. I had to try a different recipe...." See more I would never use this recipe again!"
"This recipe turned out to be a sticky mess. In the morning, the dough was as soft as it was the night before. I followed it to a tee, and still it was a mess. Not sure I will try it again...." See more"
