Kelsie said, "The original recipe says it makes approx 112 cookies. I tend to make my cookies bigger than most people, so it only ended up making about 4 dozen. Also I’ve found that using a lighter colored cookie sheet seems to make them softer. And even though the original recipe says ungreased cookie sheet, I sprayed it with cooking spray. It made them so much easier to get off the cookie sheet".
