    These were sooooo good!! They had a crispy outside with a chewy inside. The only problem I found about this recipe was the sprinkles didn’t stick the best. Other then that I totally recommend!

    These were very good, but had a false start as I was making the balls too big. Read the comments to find out they should be 0.5” - 1” in diameter. Make sure you get the ingredient amounts from the “directions” website as this recipe takes 1 and 1/2 cups of flour and not the 1/2 that you see on Yummly. These do really “melt away” in your mouth.

    crumbly dough, hard to stick together. wasn’t that impressed with them, they don’t “melt in my mouth” or anything. you never know when they are done because they don’t turn brown. most ingredients are dry except for the butter which makes it barely even dough. it was alright i guess...i was expecting more though.

    Did not hold shape at all. They ran out into a singular giant cookie and were super greasy.

    Super yummy! This will definitely be a new go to! Extremely easy to make, my 13 month old can help❤️ and they absolutely melt in your mouth I just made it for the second time and it came out even better. I made them a tiny bit larger than a marble and they kept their shape, the first photo was the first time I made them and the last one was from the second batch

    They were very light and tasty. I did add half a teaspoon of vanilla paste.

    These turned out fine. The first list of ingredients list 1/2 cup flour. You have to go to directions and you will see it is actually 1 1/2 cups flour. That should be corrected.

    Sorry but something is missing here maybe chilling the dough. I am not sure but mine following the directions totally spread out in the pan! Please remove recipe until it is verified

    This did not turn out right AT ALL... I don't understand, I'm a baker... I followed the instructions exactly... but when finished mixing the dough really didn't seem thick enough to me but went with it anyway. I couldn't make balls with them, they were to soft. When I put them in the oven they began melting and spread all over the pans. Had to throw away...
