Used this recipe to make a fruit pizza and it turned out amazing! Chewy in the center and crisp at the edges. The flour mix is perfect! Works great for all cookies!

Could you give me the recipe with weights? I see that some people are having trouble with spreading and such. I want to make these but it would be easier to get it right the first time if I had flour weight to work with.

Hi Gwen, unfortunately we do not test recipes with weights here in the Test Kitchen. However, there are some great resources available online to assist in translating recipes to weight measurements.
