E-Z and good looking, that about sums up these cookies. Funny enough I had bits and pieces of nuts to use up in my cupboard and this recipe helped me do it. Next time I would add a teaspoon of vanilla. These lacked a little punch for me, but still they got gobbled up in no time. I'll keep this beautie! Read More

Very nice simple recipe for cake mix cookies. I used 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips and skipped the almonds (I didn't have any). They baked to a perfect not-too-soft/not-too-crispy cookie in 9 minutes as stated. Read More

These were fantastic. It took about 5 minutes to get everything put together and they baked up beautifully. They didn't spread or rise much and they took a bit longer to bake than the recipe said (about 12 minutes) but they are delicious! Read More

Wow my parents said these were the best chocolate chip cookies they've ever had. Even though all the nuts I had were walnuts. I wasn't crazy about the cookies so I'd give them four stars but I'll bet they taste better when you make them with the right kind of nuts. Thanks for the recipe I'll be using it again! Read More

These were very good cookies. I made them exactly as written. (Not knowing whether to use salted or unsalted butter I used the "sweet cream salted" butter I had on hand.) I baked these for the full 11 minutes but I thought maybe another minute or two might have been better. Also my yield was only 17 cookies instead of the full "2 dozen" written because I tend to make cookies too big. I only have one minor complaint though. I thought there were way too many almonds to top the cookies. 3/4 cup was far too much to cover the tops of 17 cookies (maybe 1/3 cup would have been enough in my case) so I can imagine that 3/4 cup is still too much for 24 cookies. But all in all these were very tasty cookies - I managed to make them last me for 4 days instead of just 1! Read More

Delicious! I made a small change - instead of rolling the balls in the almonds I added sliced almonds to the batter itself. Everyone loved it. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

These were a hit at our superbowl party. I added a dash of milk and used peanut butter cups instead of chocolate chips. They were great!! Read More
