Well. They taste really good. But they spread out while baking, and pretty much looked like a pan of brownies. They stuck to the pan and to each other so they're mostly just chunks I had to cut into the shape of cookies.... And by that I mean squares. And by squares I mean not any identifiable shape. I would make again, but would add more flour next time. But they do taste great.
