Basic recipe easy to follow however I may have needed to dissolve milk with the baking soda. but it didn't say. But very good I am happy.

So yummy. One is never enough!!!!!

I made these today, followed recipe exactly. Turned out perfect - squishy on the inside cookies. Perfect. Make sure to leave them on the cookie sheet for 5 mins to harden slightly before cooling rack. Great recipe.


I love these cookies, but I add a bit of oil to add moisture to the mixture otherwise it is too dry. This may also be because I use egg replacer and olivani instead of actual egg and butter as my daughter is allergic. I also use super dark chocolate for the same reasons. The whole family love these. My husband says they taste like subway biscuits :) caution they do spread further than I expected too.
