    Kirby's Note:

    These are a lovely cake-cookie, with a deep chocolate flavor. We made these as a holiday cookie growing up, with a simple powdered sugar frosting. I don't make them often, simply because I will eat too many at once. Hope you enjoy. You may use all butter in lieu of shortening, but I wouldn't recommend using all shortening or margarine. Powdered baking chocolate works fine, too. Be sure to read the conversion chart on the packaging.

      These were just too cake like for my personal taste and not sweet enough. I also made the icing a little too thin, which didn't add anything to the flavor. I guess I prefer a chewier cookie. My family didn't really care for them either, in fact most of them were left untouched. Sorry Kirby, just wasn't what I was looking for.

      This is just the recipe I was looking for, exactly like the ones my mom use to make. I did use all butter and they turned out wonderful. Wonderfully moist and not overly sweet.
