This would be the very first time I bake cookies from scratch. I am more than satisfied with the result and it is not so hard to bake cookies actually. I guess the pre-made store-bought dough is just not my thing because I always end up burning them. I was very undecided when looking a my recipe book trying to decide what to bake. I went for the for the Frosted Cinnamon-Mocha Cookies, that's a mouthful right there. And yes, they are as good as they sound.
