    These were good. Mine turned out like the picture. Loved that these are all standard ingredients, had them all on hand.

    These were fantastic! Super easy to make, didn’t take a lot of ingredients, and really tasty! They did come out smaller than I expected (didn’t spread much on the baking sheet), but they tasted amazing and had a really nice, light cinnamon aftertaste.

    I'm a fool and didnt have baking soda. so i subbed for 3 tsp of baking powder and they turned out great!!! very happy with my first successful cookie from scratch. added broken up reeses to the mix for an even better cookie. will do again hopefully with the actual ingredients next time!

    Turned out good. Would leave in fridge a bit longer next time. Would even consider rolling into balls and put back in fridge for additional 30mins.

    They were pretty good when I was putting them on the cookie sheet the dough was a bit crumbly but in all they were amazing

    Soft and chewy, with a nice flavor. I didn't chill the dough, but they turned out fine. I also made mine a little larger, but added two minutes to the bake time to compensate, which was also fine. For more nicely browned and crunchier bottoms, I recommend using a silicone mat instead of parchment paper.

    They turned out great! I really wasn’t expecting them too. Super-easy to make. Chewy and good. Will make again! It would be better though to roll into a ball and they will flatten out.
