This is such an easy recipe to make and so good! I tried to change it a little and used regular sugar instead of the brown sugar in the second batch I made and they tasted equally good. We enjoy it both ways!!!!!

Great, easy to make cookies. One warning -cookies do not take 30 minutes to bake. I found about 15 minutes worked perfectly.
