    After reading some of the other reviews, I added 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1 cup chocolate chips. I used a size 40 cookie scoop and baked them for 15 minutes. These cookies have been a huge hit! One of my friends has tasted dozens of different types of cookies that I've made, and she told me she thought this was the best thing I've ever made! These are super delicious and super easy...a definate keeper!  -  04 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The grocery store I work at makes these same cookies in the bakery!!! We add Chocolate Chips and 1/4-1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice and they fly off of the shelves for $6 a half dozen!!! Great recipe!  -  26 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought to myself-"There is just NO WAY these are going to be good with only 2 ingredients..." But, I was in a rush and needed something fast. I couldn't help myself-I added an egg to the 2 ingredients to help bind it together. I frosted them with a canned cream cheese frosting. The cookies were well received by 12 kids and their moms, earning me high praises. Thanks Tonia for making me look so good, so easily. It was like eating the tops of a cupcake-the very best part! I sprayed the pans with Pam, and the cookies didn't stick. Mine were not gooey as some described, but I bet theirs just needed a little longer in the oven. (all ovens are different) This recipe is delicious, kid friendly, and easy to prepare and that makes it a winner (and a recipe you hand out to others)!  -  22 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
