The recipe said it yields 9 dozen cookies and by George if I didn't get exactly 9 dozen. To be fair, I had to work pretty hard scraping the bowl to get the last one... but I wasn't going to come up one short!
I thought it was really interesting that this cookie has a two day prep.
Day 1: make dough, roll into balls, roll balls into sugar and put in the fridge.
Day 2 : flatten balls, bake and enjoy
