we found these cookies were delicious. soft, nice holiday-ish fruity taste, strong chocolate flavor which is rounded out by the brandy. We think that the better the brandy, the better the cookie, since there is a slight hint of brandy overtone in these cookies. If you get Walgrenns brandy, you can expect a Walgreens cookie, so we recommend breaking out the top-shelf liquor when preparing these treats.
One problem we did encounter, however, was the cooking time. The suggested cooking time of 8-10 minutes wasn't even close. Our cookies turned out oily and half-baked (it should be noted that our pre-cooked volume of dough for each cookie was enough to fill a small shot glass). We recommend a cook time of 14-16 minutes at 375 F. When the cookies browned around the edges and small "dimples" appeared at the top of the cookie, it was time to take them out of the oven. These cookies still retained their soft, chewy texture after this length of time in the oven.
Overall, a fun and simple recipe which suits the holiday season nicely.
