    I like all the pictures to show all steps and what everything should look like. All you need is a video.

    The cookies were great. I like how on the 1st image you have the text for the instructions inside of the picture. Instructions are a little confusing with the steps all in one spot

    The cookies look really good and I think a lot of people could easily make these cookies with these pictures and instructions.

    something I found interesting is they ran out of vanilla, and had to use vodka as a substitute. A question I have is how often do you bake?

    The pictures were really helpful, but I think a video would help clarify some things.
