Tried different baking times but really seem dry and salty! Would not recommend these!😞
hello again! 19 Dec 2017
crumbly dough, hard to stick together. wasn’t that impressed with them, they don’t “melt in my mouth” or anything. you never know when they are done because they don’t turn brown. most ingredients are dry except for the butter which makes it barely even dough. it was alright i guess...i was expecting more though.

Did not hold shape at all. They ran out into a singular giant cookie and were super greasy.

Overall I think that they tasted pretty good, but did not maintain the circular shape shown in the picture. Happy with the results anyways though!

Super yummy! This will definitely be a new go to! Extremely easy to make, my 13 month old can help❤️ and they absolutely melt in your mouth I just made it for the second time and it came out even better. I made them a tiny bit larger than a marble and they kept their shape, the first photo was the first time I made them and the last one was from the second batch

They were very light and tasty. I did add half a teaspoon of vanilla paste.

These turned out fine. The first list of ingredients list 1/2 cup flour. You have to go to directions and you will see it is actually 1 1/2 cups flour. That should be corrected.

Sorry but something is missing here maybe chilling the dough. I am not sure but mine following the directions totally spread out in the pan! Please remove recipe until it is verified

This did not turn out right AT ALL... I don't understand, I'm a baker... I followed the instructions exactly... but when finished mixing the dough really didn't seem thick enough to me but went with it anyway. I couldn't make balls with them, they were to soft. When I put them in the oven they began melting and spread all over the pans. Had to throw away...
