We must be related-if you can refrain from eating the dough!! LOL!
These are excellent! I must make mine smaller, even with burning the first dozen (don't use the bottom rack) and eating probably a dozen raw, I still made up almost 7 dozen. They are great, cooked in exactly 10 minutes, and look great too!

Hi, Kathryn!

Aren't they yummy??? Now this year, we made Peppermint Whoopie Pies! I've gotta post that recipe. It is 2 die 4!

Happy New Year and let's resolve to never stop nibbling on the cookie dough! :D

I got nothing but dry flour mixture. I didn't know what to do so added more milk and they came out like biscuits. Very disappointed. Any suggestions? I am at 6500...trish
