Just okay. I was really hoping that based on the amount of butter that they'd have more of a butter taste but this didn't end up being the case. I made them for dessert and they were still there when we were ready for bed so apparently my girls weren't super impressed either. I'm sorry but I just feel like I need to be honest. Read More

Just made them for the Holidays - they are FANtastic. Really super-tasty. There was a little wasted drizzle chocolate though - so I'd lean toward using a little more IN the dough and a little less in the double-boiler. But man they taste good. Read More

These cookies are a tasty treat with coffee or tea. Not too sweet. After adding the flour mixture the dough would not pull together so I added 2 Tbs of sour cream which worked beautifully. I rolled the dough into a log rolled the log in colored sprinkles wrapped in plastic wrap and chilled for an hour in the fridge. Cut the log into 1/4 inch rounds and baked. Had to watch the cooking time so the bottoms would not brown too much. For me these cookies did not need 25 minutes to bake. Very good. Read More

These were pretty good...I think that my family prefers a softer cookie so I don't know that I would make these again but for those who like a crisp cookie this is a great recipe. I do think that if I made these again I would cook them for less time than 25 minutes. Read More

This was a BIG mistake!!! Why? Because I'm ADDICTED to this recipe! The first time I made it I almost ate the dough before baking until I discovered how good the finished cookies are. Now I can't stop playing around with the basic recipe. I've made several variations: Chocolate laced plain (w/out chocolate) Pecan sandies Lemon Lemon Lavender and I've decorated with frosting and fondant flowers. The dough holds it's shape while baking so it makes beautiful cutouts and springerle. Wonderful Wonderful recipe!! Read More

I am making these as I type... and I have to say the dough is definitely not the kind that I can "knead" the chips in. It is very light soft and more like a drop cookie dough. So I am not sure how I could have possibly made it like this as I was following the directions and the same measurements for the ingredients. Anywho... I am now making them as drop cookies and we'll see how they come out:) Read More

Very easy to make and taste great but the dough is a bit on the dry side. Read More

I made these with butterscotch chips instead of chocolate and put the whole cup in the dough. Absolutely delicious! Read More
