    My family and I tried this recipe and it works fine and tastes great, but it is way too much effort for simple cookies. I would definitely go for something less time-consuming if you just want a sweet treat.

    Terrible I followed the detailed recipe exactly with 1/4 cup flour & ended up with SOUP! I have now added 2 more cups of flour & it’s still not enough What’s with this recipe?? Someone needs to correct it

    This is absolutely delicious and some of the best cookies EVER! I used bread flour for some extra chew. When you go to scoop them out, don’t smash it into a ball, form it very loosely. Make sure to follow the butter browning, that’s what gives it its delicious flavor! It smells like a carnival in my house! Also, do not overcook them they may not look “done,” but that’s because of the butter seeping on the top. Don’t let Steve’s review affect you; he read the recipe on the app, not the website and used the wrong amount of flour. I have already made this recipe three times and am going to make it later today! It is phenomenal!

    Worst batch of sugary junk I ever made knew it from the beginning 1/4 cup of flour was not enough what a waste of ingredients should be banned from this medium

    Turned out better than I expected. I ended up chilling the dough for 4 hours and it took a good hour before I could work with the dough. It made 20 large cookies for me. They are delicious.

    These cookies are excellent!!! The browned butter provides a rich and savory flavor that pairs well with the sweetness of the brown sugar. The vanilla and cinnamon give the cookie a nice depth. The crunchy exterior and chewy interior is what makes this cookie a perfectly delectable treat. Highly recommended!
