    Gluten-free variation: omit wheat flour and use 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons white rice flour, 1/4 cup millet flour and 2 tablespoons corn starch. Increase vanilla to 3/4 teaspoon and confectioners sugar to 3 tablespoons.

    What is wrong with you people? You are so rude I can't believe it. So someone made a mistake. Is that the end of the world? Does it give you the right to mouth off in such an inconsiderate way. I read the directions and couldn't figure out what you were all complaining about. Maybe it's YOU who has the problem . . . not MSO. Come on . . . you can point out a mistake and still be nice!!!

    This is the stupidest recipe I've ever seen. Am I supposed to just throw everything together and come up with the cookie? I'm not going to try until this recipe is fixed.

    Prepare dough and place rounds on a baking sheet!!! What kind of directions are those? Surely we can expect better.

    "Prepare dough" doesn't really say much. Although the ingredients are included, this is a recipe, and instructions are necessary.
