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!

turned out more like a cake than an actual cookie

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!

I halved the recipe to make one giant cookie for my husband's birthday. Easy to make and something different for a change!

Very easy and quick to put together, and turned out very soft and cakey - even two days later. I baked half in a pizza pan and put the other half in an 8" square Pyrex dish - turned out sort of like blondies. This was for my son's 12th birthday and he was thrilled! Thanks!

Very Good Cookie! My nephew does not like cake, so he got this cookie for his 5th birthday. He wants one for every birthday now. Very good texture, not too hard on the edges which was a pleasant surprise.

I make these for birthdays at daycare and they are wonderful! Not too sweet and they stay soft!

One of the best cookie recipes yet! I made my own frosting, 4oz cream cheese and 1 cup of brown sugar. Turned out amazing! I think it might be too dry without any frosting.
