    My cookies turned out great! They were so yummy and i added white and dark chocolate which was nice. I would say they were more like small cake cookies rather than the traditional cookie, so maybe next time I will only add one egg!  -  18 Feb 2012


    Halved the ingredients to make a small batch but used a mix of white and dark chocolate chips. They taste amazing and the texture is very soft and cakes which makes a nice change to the chewy/crispy cookie.  -  30 Jul 2014


    Absolutely lovely! Have to agree with Betty that they are more like little cakes than cookies, but when they taste that good, who cares!  -  18 Mar 2013
