      These are really delicious cookies. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but my cookies kind of melted in the oven and didn't hold their shape. I halved the recipe, so maybe my measurements were off. The flavor is so good, I'll try making a whole batch soon. Thanks for posting.

      I divided these between my husband, and my two daughters boyfriends ...... rave rave reviews, and they all want more, NOW. I didnt leave them in the fridge as long as I should have, because I was in a bit of a hurry, so one or two semi-melted, but for the most part, they were perfect. i will make allowances for the longer chilling time next time (next weekend!). Excellent biscuits, oh yes, we also dont know what they are like after a few days, they dont last that long!!!! Thank you BK, loved them, made (belatedly) for ZWT8

      Excellent cookies!!! I couldn't wait a couple of days to taste them and thought that they were fantastic right now, fresh (cooled slightly) out of the oven. I made 1/2 of the recipe but can see making the full batch at Christmas time. Loved the combination of chocolate, cinnamon, pecans and cayenne pepper (nice kick from the pepper and cinnamon). Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8 Aztecs Challenge.
