    They were pretty good when I was putting them on the cookie sheet the dough was a bit crumbly but in all they were amazing

    Soft and chewy, with a nice flavor. I didn't chill the dough, but they turned out fine. I also made mine a little larger, but added two minutes to the bake time to compensate, which was also fine. For more nicely browned and crunchier bottoms, I recommend using a silicone mat instead of parchment paper.

    They turned out great! I really wasn’t expecting them too. Super-easy to make. Chewy and good. Will make again! It would be better though to roll into a ball and they will flatten out.

    Tastes very good but I’d recommend flattening the balls before baking since they don’t do it on their own.

    Decent recipe, tastes like delicious caramel when straight from the oven. They rested over night and now they’re chewy and very tasty.
