These cookies are great! They are easy and yummy. The only thing I did differently, was I cooked them 12 minutes instead of the 15-18 minutes. They came out chewy and delicious.

I did not care for this recipe. It is a very dry and hard cookie. The first 2 batches (30 cookies) were burned to the pan b/c I did not grease it, per the instructions. The cookies were a lot bigger than the picture even though we made one inch balls so the first two batches had all run into each other and looked awful.

Delicious! We did add extra butter to the melted chocolate...probably 1/4 cup more. But will defiantly make these again!! :)

These are so good they should be illegal. A brownie. A cookie. Omigosh, so delicious! My husband is in heaven on earth right now eating these. I had to walk away after having two. Thanks, these are terrific!

Love this recipe, very close to my grandmother's. I use a melon baller to make my cookies all the same size.

These were a little too dry for us. If you like a very chocolatey, but not moist cookie, this would be it.

I think something is wrong with the way this is written. They tasted off, and I couldn't figure out why until I discovered that all of the other similar recipes call for 2t. of vanilla extract, and this one doesn't. The walnuts seemed a little odd, so I didn't use them. Anyway, they weren't horrible, but something just didn't taste right.

Very easy bake! Needed to bring a dish for a potluck why not bring dessert?! Good way to hit that spot! I added more butter instead. Adjust chocolate to the consistency of the batter didnt want it to dry. In the end product i added more powdered sugar on top! Why not!! :)
