These were easy, and baked beautifully in 11 minutes. They were a little dryer than we prefer, and the flavour was much milder than I expected, but they were overall a success. I'll probably make them again, but maybe add some butter flavouring or more vanilla.

I invited a few friends over to play cards and I wanted to have something to snack on so I had my daughter make up a batch of these to have with tea and coffee. They were a big success with my friends and we all loved every last one. I will make these often because we enjoyed them so much and my grandchildren will forever be grateful for these delicious cookies.

These are so good! I will make them again soon. These are addicting, so don't plan on only eating one or two!
