cookies are too sweet, tough, and hard. I cooked them 8 min. tried 10 and they burned. I couldn't find a variation on this recipe so if anyone has one to try I would really appreciate it.

These were easy to make, especially with my two daughters helping me. The cookies came out perfect, and taste wonderful. We will definitely make these again.
