Rated 1 out of 5 by Shelvis from This recipe does not work I tried this recipe today and it doesn't work. It is too dry and it doesn't mix properly. I had to add 1 tbsp extra milk, and it still didn't work. I ended up adding an egg and still had to take it out of the Vitamix to blend it properly. The result was still very dry. My kids think they taste like dry muffin tops. It was also annoyingly difficult to clean out of the Vitamix afterward. I like my Vitamix but it's best for smoothies, gazpacho, fresh salsa, that sort of thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by paulie475 from Somethings Wrong! There must be a typo in this recipe. It does NOT work. The dry ingredients ratio to the wet ingredients is off. It’s far too dry. Please review the ingredient list and get back to us!!! Recommendation: Definitely needs more milk. Should it say 1/2 CUP of MILK? Possibly more butter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilda Harbin from home This machine has been of good service to me; after I had my stomach surgery. I didn't know you could use this machine for the purpose of making cookies too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jd101k2000 from Tried these tonight - perfect I fancied some nice biscuits and realised that I had the ingredients for these. Under an hour later, hot, delicious cookies. MMMMMMmmmm! Half an hour after that they had hardened and were delicious that way. Then tried dunking them in milk. Lovely that way too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanielleC from Perfect Easy healthy Gluten Free cookies This recipe is the easiest GF cookie recipe I have ever made!!! My husband loved them and I softened my butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. I used Pamela’s GF +Vegan for 3/4 c of the flour and 13/4 c of Aldis almond meal for the rest. Due to the fact I used GF flour I added an extra 1/4 of almond milk. It made 38 cookies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lola1 from Sounds interesting, but... While the recipe sounds interesting there is no way to print (friendly) this recipe, which makes it difficult for future cooking or reading at home.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ron B from Hi sugar content Like a lot of baking recipes this has a high sugar content, which we are told is bad for your health. You would think that recipe producers would have learned by now to reduce or provide alternatives.
