"The hardest thing about making these cookies was keeping our youngest son entertained while the dough chilled LOL! They're really nice tasting - not too sweet or too bland. My daughter took these to..." See more school as a treat for her class and the teacher asked me for the recipe to hand out to the kids because the kids all want their parents to make these...said they were like brownie cookies :)"
"Wow, these are great. I followed the recipe exactly, except I left out the nuts (didn't have any) and used 1 tsp of almond extract instead of the 2 tsp of vanilla. I was out of vanilla also. The almon..." See mored extract gave them a great flavor, and they taste just like brownies. The texture is fantastic, chewy but not mooshy. Next time I will try them with the nuts. This is a very good chocolate cookie that my friends and family just love!"
