These were very good cookies and my boys ate every one up! I agree with the other reviewers that these are very delicate cookies and must be cooled before removing from the baking sheet and I used a thin spatula to remove. I cooked them for 8 minutes. Made for ZWT4.
I took these cookies to an International Party hosted by people I didn't know. Everyone thought that the host, the resident gourmand, had made the cookies! They are delicious, but a little expensive to make. Next time I will try using cocoa powder and butter in lieu of the chocolate squares and I may use walnuts, less pricey than pecans.
These cookies taste a little like brownies. They are a bit crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. A few hints to help. Make sure to use unsweetened baking chocolate -anything more would be too sweet. Increase the temp. Cook them at 325 or 350. I also needed to cook them longer even with the increased temp. Leave them on the cookie sheet for about 3 minutes to cool. Trying to take them off any sooner results in broken up cookie crumbles. I also found using a thin metal spatula helped to keep the cookie together- my thick plastic one also resulted in broken cookies. This was made by a Jefe for ZWT 4.
Excellent little cookies. Very nice texture and wonderful flavor. I only used 1/2 cup of pecans and I think that was a mistake because after I let them cool a while and tried to lift them from the baking pan they fell apart. I had to bake these for about 15 minutes so I'll probably bake at 350 next time. Be sure and leave plenty of space between each cookie because they do spread out. Thanks for a wonderful tasting cookie.
