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.
These were FANTASTIC! I cut the sugar because of the other comment...only used 2/3 cup white instead of 1 cup. I also halved the vanilla, just because that seemed like an awful lot for a batch of cookies this size. Because it is the holidays, I added about 1 cup of holiday M&M's mint flavor. YUM! Also, I used butter instead of Crisco (personal preference). Thanks for this great cookie recipe!
This is very good recipe. Almost too sweet. You need a BIG glass of milk for these cookies.
