These cookies are good - but they sure are a lot of fuss for an average tasting cookie. I didn't think the cookie dough was nearly sweet enough. I thought that the cookies might be balanced out by the chocolate filling - but it didn't really happen. My cookies were done in the recommended 15 minutes cooking time but the filling got a crackly look to it. I was able to get 3 full dozen from this recipe & had a lot of the filling leftover.
