    I LOVE these cookies! SO GOOD!! They look perfect coming out of my oven (and that never happens with my cookies!).

    Gotta get off the computer and grab another cookie!

    Yvonne. I just made these. So so so good. I had a slight problem though because I ran out of flour, so I used 1 cup cake flour and 1 cup regular flour. Still….so good. Thank you!

      Way to improvise Nola! There’s nothing worse than realizing you don’t have enough of something until after you’ve started making it! That happens to me all the time, and usually at the worst time: midnight!!! Glad they turned out good for you… these are definitely top five fav cookie of mine!
