I baked these I must agree they aren't sweet enough without the sprinkle of sugar on top. I accidentally added 1/2 cup of milk (instead of 1/4, no extra flour needed) and they turned out wonderful, very cake like.

I baked these cookies and they were great once I tweaked the recipe. Instead of 1 3/4 cups of flour I have to put in 2 cups to make sure the mix is not too liquidy... And before I put them in the oven I always sprinkle sugar on top of each batch! :D

I baked these cookies the other day and they were great. I already had everything I needed to make the cookies in my pantry!
