    cookie dough was great, although I followed another review for cooking them (15minutes, shot glass and then 5 minutes) but I put the right amount and it made 9 instead of 6 which was great!

    They were delicious but I suggest to put them in the oven for 15 min and do the shot glass and then back in for 5min 40 min makes them burn.(you can also do as many chocolate chips as you like).
