The 7 cookies that turned out taste very good, but after using a small cookie scoop the first batch burned on the bottom, I checked but hard to see it was burning on such a dark cookie. I only baked remaining 8 minutes. They are very delicate so some fell apart when trying to dip in confectioner sugar/cocoa mix. Alot of good ingredients for 7 small cookies.
