      These are superb! One of the best says DH. They're chewy - a bit crisp outside and soft inside. The ones I left longer in the oven were not as soft but they were still very good! DH was scooping them right off the pan even if I told them they still needed to be cooled. Thanks, Kim D! Made for TOTM's Election Eats Tag Game.

      Overall a good but not great soft cookie. Dough easy to handle and the final taste of the cookie also depends on the quality of morsels used.

      Great recipe! I used margarine (gasp!) since I was out of butter but omitted the water. I also added about 1/2 cup walnuts. They were light and fluffy and delicious.
