gonzales69361: Let us know how the cookies turn out if you get a chance to make them. Thanks for your comment! Blair, editor at

Sounds like the one my mother had. It was lost.

ckk1109: Thank you for your comment. Sometimes our readers are our best editors. The measurement identifier of cups was missing from the recipe. I added it in. Also, you can use all-purpose flour. If you're trying to make them a bit healthier, you can use white whole-wheat flour. I hope this helps! Thanks! Blair, editor at

This recipe is difficult to follow having to guess the measurement of the flour and the type of flour.

Just made them and they are soooo good ! TY for sharing. Can this Cookie Dough be stored in Freezer? If so, for how long?
