I made these cookies yesterday and we really enjoyed them. I thought they were a little too sweet and would reduce the amount of granulated sugar the next time.
Since it makes so many I would probably freeze half the dough mixture for future use.
Just made these again, and suggest that 350 degrees is high enough and just bake a little longer so that they do not become too dark.
