Very good. They are very close to a brownie. You don't think they're done after 7-9 minutes, but they are after they set. Very chewy. I'm know for my chocolate chip cookies and my husband said these might even be better than those!

Not the recipe I was hoping for. Soft and cakey, not chewy. Easy enough to follow but not one to keep.

really yummy & chocolatey! As per other review, do NOT increase oven temp & bake longer!!! You will burn cookies. I think her oven might be off. I found recipe to be exactly right.

Two stars for this cookie as I was very disappointed in how it baked into a typical flat pancake-like cookie. I have been baking for years and have not seen such a flat cookie recipe in about as many. They were hard to remove from my well greased sheet ,even after I let them sit on the sheet for a few minutes to cool off. They are crumbly and not a very solid cookie at all. On a positive note, they are a very tasty cookie. I won't be making these again. sorry, just not happy at all with these.

Absolutely heavenly. They are not only soft, but they have this melt-in-your-mouth texture. They were all gobbled up within a few hours of my making them - a huge hit with all my picky brothers and sisters! Tomorrow is my eldest brother's birthday (he's away attending college) and this is what I am sending him in the mail - I'm sure he'll love them as much as we al at home do!!

These are great brownie-cookies. Followed recipe with one exception: one cup of chocolate chips is enough for me. To dress them up for a Christmas party, add a little pink peppermint frosting & crushed candy canes.
