“A basic cookie dough with many options for fillings/toppings. I saw the chefs on The Crew make this and thought I'd like to try it as the combinations are limitless! They gave me ideas I never would have thought of. Can't wait to try it. Recipe says it serves 12 but does not give a yield, so that is a guesstimate.”
2 dozen
