This recipe makes a great cookie. Very easy to make. I also reduced the milk by 1/4 cup. I used sour milk. This cookie is very close to one made by my German grandmother (many years ago.) Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Like a cake batter and thus the cookie is puffy and so very moist. I added spices as the original recipe was a little bland for me so added all spice, cinnamon and cloves to the batter. Don't under bake as they stick to the cooling rack. Must reduce milk by 1/4 cup as others have noted!

These were like fluffy and light versions of traditional sugar cookies plus no chilling of the dough, which I love! I used buttermilk instead of sour milk and reduced the amount by a 1/4 c. They were perfect, not too runny, and I got about 3 dozen large cookies. Delicious with a cold glass of milk!

These cookies taste marvelous! The kids loved them!! I did have problems with the batter being a bit "thin" and it resulted in my cookies running into each other on the baking sheet so will try your recipe again and see if I goofed some how. I'll rate them when I make that second batch - but the kids would give them a 10 for flavor!
