    How many cookies does this recipe create? Can it be halved? I bake for myself and don’t have space for dozens of cookies 🙂
    And this seems like other ranger cookie recipes online, if i wanted to add nuts/raisins etc when should i do it?
    Also i tried halving a cookie recipe before and it wasnt the greatest outcome….hopefully yours will come out better.

      I’d say 3 to 4 dozen.
