Well, right away I could tell there was less butter...less flavor..warm from the oven. I was a bit disappointed, but they were still OK, not bad or anything, so I continued baking them, and set them aside.
The next day I reached for a cookie took a bite, and....YES....they were really good! They were soft and chewy and delicious. I do believe she is right...they DO taste even better with less butter. Well at least the next day they did... for me anyway.
As usual, they had no problem disappearing!
I'll be making them again.
