These were good, they got a lower rating because they were not quick and easy. I lack patience and contrary to what the recipe indicated, I forgot to refrigerate and did not allow them to cool on the pan. Needless to say my first dozen looked like a 2-year old had mutilated them. After that I reread the directions, put the batter in the fridge between batches and left the pan cool completely before trying to remove them. These babies even stuck to my awesome Ikea pan. The batter was so sticky that it actually turned my cookie scoop inside out! That’s only ever happened once before. These are what I would classify as a more adult cookie, although the kids did eat them, they weren’t the first kind they went for.
