    These look yummy! Do they come out crispy or soft?

    They turn out really soft and huge. Seriously, the perfect cookie. Do try.

    I used this recipe and the cookies turned out great; however, I didn’t make them huge, and I didn’t use pecans. Soft and friendly.

    I recommend cooking them on a non-greased parchment paper lined baking sheet.

    These cookies are amazing. My family simply adores them! Thank you so much 😛

    About 10 minutes after the batch was out on the table they were gone 😛

    I had to improvise however, because you don’t mention what type of brown sugar or if its salted butter or not.

    I went with light brown and salted butter. Was good 😀

    thank you again!
