    This was good, but I definitely would not call it a cookie, although it looks like one. It has a cake-like texture. The flavor is good though and it bakes nicely but if you are looking for a cookie-like texture, skip this recipe. I baked 2 pans: 1 was a 13x9 the other was 8x8. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Rosina!  -  12 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Delicious! I halved the ingredients and put it in an 8x8 pan, using 1/3 c. egg whites instead of an egg. Like a chocolate chip cookie cake! Yum! Will probably make again!  -  19 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I halved the recipe to make one giant cookie for my husband's birthday. Easy to make and something different for a change!  -  05 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
