I love reviews! I was looking for a cookie that I could use to make ice cream sandwiches and with a little tinkering this fit the bill. I doubled the sugar and added 1 tbsp instant coffee to the water before adding it to the dough. Also instead of rolling into cylinders I just rolled flat (after chilling) and cut out my circles (dough was maybe 1/4" rather than 1/2") and stuffed with ice cream! Delicious! Read More

maybe it was just me and my kids but we thought these tasted like cocoa flavored flour. Not terrible but needs some tinkering... Read More

Couldn't see using 4 eggs to make 1 cup of egg so assumed typo and used 1 only. Added vanilla and salt and more sugar but still very little flavor. Texture very cake-like. Reminded me of fat-free diet cookie like Snackwells. Read More

These worked out perfectly for my use which was a cheesecake crumb-crust. I wasn't looking for anything too sweet just something to create chocolate cookie crumbs-which it did! I warned my kids not to eat them plain-which they did(much to their chagrin). Anyways...thanks! Read More
