Crispy Crackling Cookies

Crispy Crackling CookiesMy son gave me a pretty little package he made at preschool for Valentine’s Day. It was a cookie starter kit that his teacher helped him make. I forgot all about the starter kit until I found it in my pantry the other day. They were very easy to make and tasted fantastic. We made them as is but will try adding different ingredients like coconut, chocolate chips, and nuts next time. They were chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside – they tasted perfect dipped in ice-cold milk. My son and I had a great time making these cookies and an even better time eating them. Thanks, Teacher Pat!

  1. This recipe is great . Easy to make and taste delicious. Had all the ingredients on hand. Will definitely make again. Thank You for the recipe.

  2. These taste delicious! Any ideas on why my dough was extra crumbly? I ended up not being able to bake all of them because they wouldn’t form into any sort of cookie shape.

    1. Megan,

      I’ve never had that happen so I am not sure. It may be that your egg was too small so there wasn’t enough liquid?
