Why are there so many typos? Some steps are needlessly repeated.

I'm glad you posted this but it seems rushed. You should edit your work more closely.

Sorry about the previous mistakes, someone had hacked in and changed my original. I hope it's all good now.

Thank you so much for posting this, I for one certainly appreciate it. As for the typos, why did you get so upset Danielle over something so unimportant? If you see it's repeated, it's obviously an error, just move on. She did us all a favor by posting the recipe, no need to make her feel bad because she had a few typos. I can't wait to try it and I'm thankful that someone took the time and effort to post it. So Thank You Cheryl!!!

Thank you for sharing your recipe for these "Pink Cookies"! I just read the article on these banned cookies, and as a cookie lover, had to find the recipe! I'm thinking we need to change the name of this cookie to "Super-Duper-Banned-By-FLOTUS-Pink-Cookies"....and maybe send her a batch of these yummies so she can see what she's missing! ;)

I live in Elyria. My children attended Elyria schools and purchased hundreds of those cookies over the years. They are delicious and I have made them at home. They don't last long.
