made a couple of mods because of lack of ingredients see below ]my cooking time was closer to 18 minutes but my cookies are also 3 inches across. My oven temperature was spot on 350 because i checked it with a thermometer. I was concerned because it was a very thick batter but everything worked out perfect. I used parchment paper under the cookies because i am a lazy sod and hate scrubbing pans. New favorite cookie.

My family loves this recipe. Thank you for this! "So fluffy!" -quote from my brother I also did not do the glaze. I was being lazy today, but the cookies are still delicious without it!
