Also, near the end of her recipe it says to..." See more bake for 8-10 minutes but it should be 14 minutes. I had fallen in love with these cookies when I first tried them years ago but didn't get the recipe at that time. When I found it here I tried it and they were extremely bland..not at all like I remembered them. After researching several other recipe sites I consistantly found the changes I've mentioned and my cookies are much improved. Hope this helps."
