    The cookies turned out great. These are the best cookies I've made so far, easy to make and delicious to eat.

    Made these for the first time for my husband about two years ago. Now I make them about three times a year. They don't last long in this house. Everyone loves them! Tip to non flat cookies is to use butter that isn't too soft. Take the butter out to soften about two hours before baking. Hope that helps.

    These are a MUST MAKE! they are so rich and delicious. I added some chocolate chips and they turned out great! My husband and son loved them. I would recommend baking them a minute longer than the recommended were just a bit doughy in the center. Never the less still delicious and I will make them again!

    I made these for our 4th of July picnic this year. I actually added a package of semi-sweet chocolate chips to them, because for me, the more chocolate, the better something is! I made 2 batches, and they were almost gone before the meal was put out! My brother, who is a gym rat and doesn't eat sweets, ate about 20 himself, and is already asking when I'm going to make them again! I guess you could say they were a hit!

    These were divine! I did add some whole wheat pastry flour, as I normally do with my baked goods (unless white). My cookies did not flatten. They stayed puffy and soft, but chewy. To avoid flat cookies, use some shortening in your recipes. I used 1/2 cup shortening, and I also used 1/2 cup brown sugar. They were perfectly delcious! This recipe is a a keeper!

    These are my favorite cookies ever! Growing up we had them every Christmas season. Ever since I have been out on my own( and I'm in my 30's now) I just Love making them whenever I feel like it rather than only having them around the Holidays! Of course, I make them at Christmas too! I'm pregnant right now, and I'm looking forward to making them with my little girl in the holidays to come.

    This is an awesome cookie recipe! I was looking for a chocolatey recipe to add some mint chocolate chips to. I made these tonight, and they are not lasting long! They are too good to leave on a plate. These are better than fresh double chocolate chip cookies from Subway! :D

    These are amazing! Absolutely decadent! Very easy to make and will plan on making these over and over again anytime I'm in need of a chocolate and peanut butter fix!

    This recipe was scrumpdillyicious, chewy and gooey, and rich when they were fresh. Stored them in wax paper to keep the freshness. Will definately make again for the chocolate peanut butter lovers.
