  1. Just tried this recipe and it was easy to make and delicious. Although instrutions don't indicate whether to make balls and bake or if the balls should be pressed flat. I pressed them flat with a fork.

  2. I also just made the recipe and I agree, easy and delicious! I didn't have any milk on hand and used water instead, with no adverse results. I also pressed each cookie down with a fork to flatten. I baked at 375 degrees out of habit, but 350 might be better to get a chewier cookie. Enjoy!
