These cookies turned out delicious, with a the few additional ingredients that I added. I took the advice of another reviewer and added a pinch of salt and a half teaspoon of vanilla or so. Also, if you cook them a little longer, like 12 to 15 minutes and also let the dough sit for 10 minutes after being in the fridge for 15, they aren't so cake textured. A good substitution for the walnuts is almonds, and white chocolate chips. I loved these cookies with the proper adjustments.


I am not a huge chocolate fan (odd choice of cookies, but there you are), and these are right up my alley. Not over-the-top in-yer-face death-by-chocolate, but a very delicate, mild flavor, cut nicely by the nuts. The first bite actually tastes a bit bland, but maybe a teeny bit of salt or vanilla could fix that. After that, they're very good, but subtle. Also, I like that they stay pillowy soft for days. Overall, I really like them, but know your audience: a die-hard choco-holic would need to add a generous amount of chocolate chips or something!


The weirdest thing happened when I tried to make these. I wanted more cookies than it called for so I doubled the recipe. When I was done mixing all of the ingredients the "dough" was more like a cake or brownie batter. There is no way I could have made cookies out of the "dough", so I put it into a 13 X 9 in. pan and baked it like a cake. My husband said they tasted like brownies and they were delicious! I don't know why this happened, I've been baking for years and have doubled recipes countless times before. Oh well, they didn't go to waste and we had a yummy treat anyway! Maybe I will try them again without doubling the recipe and see what happens.
