semisweet chocolate chips
YUM! This came out just the way I wanted it to! I didn't have any eggs so that is why I originally used this recipe...YUM!
Too rich and not in a good way. I even tried adding bananas (as one of the reviews said) but I didn't like it. My brother (who eats anything) said it was pretty good. You should be the judge!!
I picked this recipe because it doesn't have eggs in it and I wanted to bake it with my toddler. The flavor was too strong, almost bitter, and the texture made it hard to chew. Maybe I did something wrong, but I won't be making this again. On the plus side, the dough didn't taste as bad as the finished cookie, so it would be good if you want that raw dough taste without worrying about salmonella!
My husband and I wanted cookies and didn't have any eggs we use this one and it came out great. I added 3 ripe bananas and chocolate chips and green sugar sprinkles mmmm
I toasted the pecans - tastes almost like toffee.
This recipe is great. It can also be made with Butterscotch Chips and Walnuts or Vanilla Chips and Macadamia Nuts.
This is wonderful! I've made these cookies since the early seventies! But bananas, coconut, almonds! Are you kidding me? This is basically Scottish shortbread with vanilla, chocolate chips, and pecans! My recipe calls for 12 ounces of chips, and 1/2 tsp more of vanilla. If it tastes bitter, like one person says, you've burned it! Believe me, this is crucial! I've ruined a few batches by overcooking
Really watch them, don't let it brown on edges too much! This is not meant to be a bar cookie! Don't try to turn it into one! Again if it tastes bitter or strong, it's been baked too long. Also, use the right size pan, you must use the 10x15 jelly roll pan cookie sheets are too big. The pieces should be thick and small, and crumbly! Don't be put off by the weird crumbly texture of raw dough, its better mixed with your hands, then dump it into the pan and press it around until its basically the same thickness. Use milk chocolate if you want to make sure it doesn't turn bitter! Flavor is milder too.By the way the best nuts for this is pecans!
This recipe surprised me. I thought it would just taste like crunchy cookies but the butter and sugar caramelized a bit which gave them a slight toffee flavour. I didn't change anything in the recipe except to add a bit of cinnamon just because I felt like it. I cut it into bars with a pizza cutter as soon as it was out of the oven and it broke nicely into pieces when it cooled.
I made it because I didn't have eggs but I will choose to make it again because it is yummy! Next time I'm going to see what they taste like with brown sugar instead of white. Thanks for the recipe!
