I did not like these cookies. In fact, they tasted really horrible. Maybe 1 whole teaspoon of baking powder is too much?

Delicious. Not a heavy chunky cookie but rather soft and light. Really easy to make though found mixture too wet to roll,pushed mixture off tespoon onto a baking sheet with another spoon. The heat made them spread into desired round shape. Will definitely be making again :)

I have made this recipe quite a few times now but with Doves Farm Gluten free Plain White Flour - they work a treat!
I personally don't flatten the dough (point 6 of method)- this happens naturally during the cooking process. They do need to spaced far enough apart though as they do merge if placed too close together. Yum!
