Took these to a cookie exchange and they were a hit. I used Scharfen-Berger semi-sweet chocolate instead of chocolate chips. Shaped the cookies into little sort-of squares instead of pressing down with a fork, and so they were half dipped in chocolate. Also I dipped them in chopped pistachios after the chocolate so they looked great with the green nuts on the chocolate and tasted even better with a little saltiness from the nuts to go along with the chocolate. Loved them. Will make them again and again.
A very well written out recipe. With easily available ingredients and the world's favourite "C" item in them, these just were PERFECT! I did not flatten these out because when I tried doing that, they would simply break. So, I shaped them into shells, rounds, squares, ovals, and many more shapes(some twists n turns here n there n what figures emerged!). I licked my fingers clean after dipping them in chocolate!! These are addictive!!! I will make them for my hubby for sure if we had to ever fight and I would be in the wrong:)!!! Thanks so so much for sharing this recipe. U made my day and many more to come!
Heaven in your mouth! Brought these to a Christmas Dinner... Nothing but compliments. I rolled them in chopped pecans after dipping in chocolate...
