Top Review by Gay Gilmore

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.
