Thanks! Easy to make in no time. I like that they aren’t super sweet. Next time I want to try adding a teaspoon of vanilla. Have you tried that?

Thanks! I’m happy you liked them! They are definitely a staple when it comes to cookies in my house. Yes, I actually have tried adding vanilla. I think it was 1-2 teaspoons that I used and it was perfect.
