Soooo yummy. They were super easy to make and taste awesome. Not too sweet, with almost a fudgey texture. I plan on making these a lot. :)

These weren't exactly fabulous cookies. They turned out a little crispy and were flatter than I anticipated. My husband said they were just ok.

very yummy! i altered the recipe a bit because i couldn't find one for chocolate flax meal cookies and they turned out great. I used all butter but cut it to 1/2 cup. reduced flower to 1 1/4 cups added about 3tbs. flax meal and about 1tb milk.

These turned out wonderful! I made them a bit smaller and came out with 20 cookies. I baked each batch for about 8 minutes. I ran out of confectioner's sugar, so I ended up rolling the balls of dough in granulated sugar, and they were just as good. I brought them to my Bible study group, and was asked for the recipe. Everyone loved them!

I'm sure I did something wrong. I can usually bake all sorts of yummy things, but these cookies turned out very flat, and didn't taste very good. They looked good when I puled them out of the oven, but as they were cooling off, they flattened to pancakes. I'm sure I did something wrong, just not sure what?

I doubled the cocoa and was heavy on the powdered sugar, they were great. Love 'em

Excellent! Was looking for a chocolate fix and it definitely hit the spot. I did add an extra tablespoon of cocoa for a more chocolaty cookie. Will make again for sure but maybe will add some nuts for a nice mix!
