My enthusiasm was tempered by the fact that there were only 10 reviews about these cookies. However I was feeling wild and dangerous so I decided to give them a try. (That's just how I roll.)The recipe is perfect as is, but the cookies are really rich, so use a small cookie scoop. This is a chocolate chip cookie with some oomph (texture) which I really like. The nuts I used were pecans and they kept the texture from getting mushy and stuck to the roof of your mouth.(That doesn't happen to anyone else? My bad)The dough seems a little dry at first, but if you chill it overnight then bake them, the consistency is perfect. It would not hurt a thing in the world to back off the brown sugar, use applesauce, substitute raisins for chocolate, add flax seed, or whatever to make this a little healthier snack for your kiddos. This recipe can handle it. Almost like a granola cookie, but you know exactly what's in them. Personally, I'll eat them endulgently, feel fat and guilty about eating them, then get over it. I just don't hang on to negative feelings too long ;-)
