There's the possibility that the recipe was originally English or Australian. Anywhere else but America, actually.

Only in America do tablespoons measure only 3 teaspoons. Elsewhere, tablespoons measure 4 teaspoons.

That may account for the extra cookies. Either way, they would have been decent-sized cookies. I usually use a heaped teaspoon.

I always use a level #40 portion scoop for each cookie, then slightly flatten it before baking.

I really like your idea of using homemade cookies. That's a great idea.

So purrfectlydevine,
Are you going to share the recipe with us? I agree with you about making the cookies homemade. I don't care if a person is homeless or who you are you can tell if they are homemade. Where I go to church I am in a group at church called Care Ministry and we bring homemade cookies in a gift bag to any new people that visit. Some people resorted to not making homemade. I think homemade does say you care. I even bought a cookbook that is nothing but cookies. Any good cookie recipe that someone can share would be greatly appreciated.

The recipes are copyrighted so I'll have to PM a site helper or administrator to see if they can be posted.

Recipes cannot be copywritten. Or, strictly speaking, ingredient lists cannot be copywritten, but methods can. You can get around this by altering the wording slightly. For instance, if the recipe says 'stir continually', all you have to do is say 'stir constantly' and you've covered yourself. It's perfectly legal to do this. You can also change the title.

Or do what I do, and just make sure to give credit to the person/book that it comes from.

Daisy is right, just say it with your own words.

Hey all, I'm going to give those cookie recipes their own threads. Go look for them.
