These cookies didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. They took more work than I usually put into cookies and the flavor was rather bland even with the chocolate frosting. I baked them for 8 minutes instead of 6 because they seemed too doughy but then they ended up hard. I probably won't be making these again. Read More
