    so good
    This is the third recipe I've ever attempted and they came out so good!! At first I thought the stick wasn't going to stay, but I stuck them in the fridge. They came out thicker for me the second time, but I don't have a mixer, so they're probably smoother with one. But all the same these are the perfect measurments for an amazing cookie.
