These cookies are great! They are easy and yummy. The only thing I did differently was I cooked them 12 minutes instead of the 15-18 minutes. They came out chewy and delicious. Read More

I did not care for this recipe. It is a very dry and hard cookie. The first 2 batches (30 cookies) were burned to the pan b/c I did not grease it per the instructions. The cookies were a lot bigger than the picture even though we made one inch balls so the first two batches had all run into each other and looked awful. Read More

Love this recipe very close to my grandmother's. I use a melon baller to make my cookies all the same size. Read More

These were a little too dry for us. If you like a very chocolatey but not moist cookie this would be it. Read More

I think something is wrong with the way this is written. They tasted off and I couldn't figure out why until I discovered that all of the other similar recipes call for 2t. of vanilla extract and this one doesn't. The walnuts seemed a little odd so I didn't use them. Anyway they weren't horrible but something just didn't taste right. Read More

Added a drizzle of melted butter and milk chocolate chips into the batter and they were out of this world. Take out at minute 11 and let sit on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes. Melt-in your mouth amazing! Read More

Taste was good but they came out too flat like pancakes! Will add more flour next time. Read More
