    Perfect!! I did everything the recipe required however I added more baking powder, not sure if that's the reason for not staying soft. Nonetheless they were delicious and my picky eater agreed.

    Subbed vanilla extract for Bailey’s Irish Cream ecause I didn’t realize I was out- worked perfectly- didn’t measure but maybe about 2.5 shots. Overall they turned out great, using 1 tsp to measure the dough made around 50 cookies. Flatten before putting in the oven.

    Cookies tasted good but the dough was to dry and crumbly to roll into sugar before baking. needs some liquid to make it more malleable.

    Very easy to make! And using the teaspoon as a cookie measure, they all turned out the same perfect size. Very sweet :) Recommended!

    I had a very difficult time missing the dough with a hand mixer. Especially when gradually adding the flour. The cookies never turned brown around the edges even when baked for 3 minutes longer than suggested time. I won’t be making these again!

    Great! On the dry/powdery end of cookie land but not in a bad way! I rolled mine is rainbow sprinkles instead of sugar

    Great! I didn’t have a cup of butter only 3/4 cup, so I added sour cream to make the full cup and it turned out pretty good
