      Very nice cookie! I took my warm cookies and dipped them into the frosting. Very easy and they had a nice glaze that way.

      I really liked these cookies! The texture and consistency are great. I really wish they had a richer chocolate flavor. A half cup of cocoa wasn't enough for me for this size batch of cookies. I will definitely add more next time, but overall, I really like this recipe. The icing is really good, too. I will be adding more cocoa to that as well.

      Very nice cookies. They were like mini cakes, but they didn't have the chocolate flavor I was really hoping for. Added a handful of chocolate chips to them and made a raspberry glaze to try and give them more flavor. Might try them again in the future with a few changes here and there.
