No egg? I think I would add 1 egg to this recipe. That would give them some oomph.

I really wanted to like these, but they never seemed baked. They need something to give them oomph, but I don't know what. If you have suggestions, please write a review because I would like to serve them again, but with more flavor.

I've noticed that some people are complaining about the cost break down. The cost of each ingredient is broken down by ounce and the total purchase price is based on buy larger quantities which lowers the total cost.

SNAP recipients questioned how it was possible to make this recipe for the cost listed of $1.86. The cost of just the chocolate chips exceeded $1.86.

Cookies do not spread while they are cooking but that may be because I only had butter and the recipe called for margarine. I will make it again to see if this change in ingredients matters and I will rate it again.
