These cookies were great! They tasted wonderful, Hope you don't mind Willow but I had to give your recipe out to 5 people at work ; ) They were a big hit! Very chocolatey for a cookie. The icing brought out the chocolate flavor. Thank you!

I followed the recipe exactly, and was quite disappointed in these cookies. They are very cakey in texture and not as chocolately as expected. If anyone wants to try these, I would suggest adding some nuts, dried cherries or chocolate chips or something to them to liven them up somewhat. I don't think I would bother making these again.

I was quite convinced by the first review of these cookies, and then even more convinced by the second...the cakey texture sounded so tempting. They were awesome! I've given the recipe to many people, and everyone loves them! Whoever doesn't like them are crazy. The icing does, as said before, bring out the chocolatey flavor. JustCallMeMartha must have messed up the recipe. :-)
