different strokes!! said...

hi ..I tried the recipe..they cookies got a nice look and they even rose from their size but in 15 min time ..I felt they were still not ready and on touching, they felt too soft and uncooked so I kept them on for another 5 min..
The cookies after that became a lil hard ..can you suggest where should I improve..thanks

If u think they are not ready in 15 minute then do the increment of 2 minute and recheck..i took it out when they were pale brown in color..cookied are always soft to touch when warm it become hard as they cool so always look for their color for doneness..
