  • Would have enjoyed watching this more, if she had already measured everything out. Grew tired of watching video.

  • O.k. cookies. I will cut down on the brown sugar next time to 3/4 cup and increase the bake time to 17 minutes. I least my husband and dog eat them, so they must be pretty good!!
