By far the best cookies I've come across. Try beat mrs fields in my eyes! Making my second batch in a matter of weeks at the moment! 50 cookies per a batch is a lot for two people to get through! Lol - 11 Dec 2011


My favourite cookie recipe. The kids love them! I get at least 40 cookies out of this recipe too so very cost effective. - 03 Jun 2012

I halved the recipe; they have a good flavour but they are insanely sweet. They didn't rise just all spread into each other. - 01 Jun 2012
