This recipe is simplistic and good. I love cookies with this kind of delicate texture. Perfectly crunchy on the outside with the right amount of chewy on the inside. Very dependable. Yields around 40 cookies.

Just had great fun testing this recipe with my nearly two year old! will def make again.. nice easy recipe. Nice calm activity sitting rolling the dough into all the balls ;) cookies come out with a crisp shell and chewy middle... hope thats how they are meant to be, but we loved them like that!
