What is so good about my creation is that it tastes very good. The problem I am solving is the problem of desserts that get old after eating them over and over again, because you can never get tired of these delicious cookies. They also turn out very well every single time, of course, as long as you follow the recipe. My target audience is anyone who enjoys desserts and is in favor of trying out these scrumptious cookies.
Amazing what can come from a little collaborative time between student and parents.
