Off a Golden Crisco package. WOW! Are these good! My husband and I couldn't stop eating (I'm ashamed to admit). We omit the nuts, as our daughters are allergic to peanuts (and it is difficult to find nuts that are not cross-contaminated).

These brownie cookies were incredible! Mine turned out nothing like the picture - they were DARK, more like a brownie.<br/>I've had them out of the skillet for about an hour and they have stayed nice and chewy, and they are very sweet. Unless you have a mean sweet tooth, I would recommend cutting down on the sugar. I used about a half a cup of chocolate chips and I didn't miss the extra. The cookie itself is so chocolatey, it would be excellent plain. The walnuts add a nice texture and crunch. Any kind of Crisco shortening would work just as well; I used all vegetable without any problems. This will probably be my go-to cookie recipe now :)

These were a great cookie. After reading the other reviews I decided to reduce the sugar to just under 3/4 cup and use the full amount of vanilla. In the rush to get these done I forgot to add the nuts and chocolate chips. These were so good no one noticed. I made these for the kids as an after school snack and they loved them. Thanks for a great cookie recipe.

These were okay, but no different from an ordinary chocolate chip cookie.
