    Did i read right that we add them by teaspoons?

    • I use my smallest eating spoons and mound it. So I think what you would call a teaspoon (I used that size to stir my tea/coffee) Hope that helps!

  9. This recipe was a huge hit! I added skor bits instead of cherries. Delicious and so easy!

  10. Thanks for the recipe! How many cookies does this recipe make?
