I can’t believe this page doesn’t have more comments — I’m afraid no one believes they are the best. But seriously, these ARE the best cookies I have ever made! I always come back to your recipe after trying another one. SO good. Thanks!

Yay, Tamar! Thanks for the feedback. I posted this recipe when my blog was brand new, 4 years ago. I am wondering if I need to post them again so more people can see how good they are ;)

stumbled upon this recipe MONTHS ago on your blog. bookmarked it, and totally forgot about it. just made these today and they are AMAZING!! must be something about the altitude (I live near Baltimore, MD) that mine came out a little thicker, but still delicious and the perfect Friday treat :)

Interesting! Yeah, I know Utah is different for sure when it comes to baking. Glad you tried and liked! xoxo
