  1. Mine made a lot more than 24 cookies. Approximately how many tablespoons of dough should I use per cookie?

    Thanks 🙂

    I made these cookies tonight and my family loved them. They are so easy to make and mine turned out perfect. I cooked mine 9 minutes as you suggested . I will surely be making another batch soon. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    1. Thank you Martha! I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed them! That just fills me with joy to hear this! The nice thing is you can also change up the candy if you would like to create a new treat! I so hope you come back and say hello again soon!

      Many Blessings,
