Recipe Comments & Reviews

I love this cookie! I use "self-rising flour", so I do not use baking soda or salt. I have used self-rising flour for the past 40 yrs and will never use reg flour.
Very light and crispy, great texture. Hate soft cookies, so these were great. Had trouble getting them off the bottom of the glass, but smooshed them with my hand and they turned out great!
Very nice flavor and appearance.
These cookies were delicious! Make sure to add pure vanilla extract! It makes the cookie! Yummm!
