      Made these last night and did not have good luck. Recipe is missing cook time and suggestions for spacing of cookies on sheet prior to baking. All I ended up with was a huge mass of crisy goodness. Delicious, but un-useable for intended purpose. I'm wondering if maybe this either needs a bit more flour or something different. Will be interested in seeing other's reviews if they try this recipe.

      I made these last year for Christmas and they are delicious!! The "batter" spreads out A LOT when you cook them, so make sure you space them evenly. It was also hard to make the sandwiches because the chocolate squishes through the holes made when cooking, but the taste makes up for it. Great recipe.
