    I almost think this would work better if you rolled them out and used a cookie cutter. When I baked my "inch ball" ( I used a small cookie scoop), they never really flattened. I did try cooking some of them at a slightly lower temp and 5 min longer. I think it still needs some tweaking on the time.

    Dough was really dry, right from the get go. First batch didn’t flatten hardly at all, so I tried flattening them a little before baking. They did spread better, and actually tasted good straight from the oven, but after cooling, they were hard as rocks! I melted and drizzled white chocolate on them, to add eye appeal and maybe a smidge of moisture, but even that wasn’t enough to entice my husband. He ate only 2, complained how hard they were, never went back for another. Will probably have to pitch most of them. This recipe is not a keeper, at least not at my house.
