Did you push cookies down or leave as a ball? Didn't cook fully in 8-10 minutes. Any suggestions? Or did I not leave them out long enough to cool. (5 minutes)

These cookies are wonderful and super easy! Personally, I don't like them warm, but after they cool they are bombshell-delicious! Can replace up to half the sugar with honey--if you replace all the sugar with honey, the cookies are too soft. Just one note: these work better with miniature chips than regular.

these never turned into cookies... i think someone forgot to add the flour to the recipe....

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
These cookies are not supposed to have flour in them. Make sure your cookie sheet is not warm when making them or they will spread too much.

I make a similar recipe using 1 cup of brown sugar instead of the granulated. Do try this recipe-- it is fabulous, easy, and has no butter or flour!

didn't try this recipe because there is no flour in it??? What holds it together?
