These were a success. I also increased the amount of water to about 3 tablespoons and they turned out well this way. Read More

Nice but a dry dough. I had to add 3 tbs more water so maybe an extra egg next time. I left out the nuts but followed the rest of the recipe. Not sure of the purpose of dissolving the baking soda though--probably just as easy to just mix it in. I baked at 13 minutes each not 15-20. Overall a nice hearty cookie but needs a few adjustments. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
