      Another simple and tasty cookie. Went together really fast, and DD and I had lots of fun baking them off. Dough is firm and easy to handle. Makes a nice presentation with more traditional holiday cookies.

      I was looking for a chocolate roll out cookie recipe to make chocolate bunny cookies for Easter. This cookie was just okay. It didn't have enough of a chocolate flavor for my tastes and I don't think that the color of the cookie is especially appealing. I'll probably have to frost them with a chocolate icing. I don't know if I would make this again.

      I'm giving these cookies 4/5 solely based on their taste. I am surprised every time I take a bit how tasty they really are! Usually I like cookie dough more than the baked result, but these are one of the exceptions; they taste just as great. There's a great deep, rich (not overload, though; maybe vivid, or full-flavored?), almost creamy taste to them. The sweetness is just right. My only issue with them is that the dough behaved horribly when I tried to roll it out. I sprinkled confectioner's sugar on my rolling surface, rolling pin, and hands, and the dough still stuck. It was simultaneously too hard and too soft, it seemed. I had cooled it all night and let it come down in temperature a bit. I did have to work the first batch of dough a bit as it was too cold to be rolled, but even after that both batches seemed to fall apart on me. I found pressing the dough down with my hands to minimize the use of the rolling pin worked alright. I will confess that I forgot to mix the dry and wet ingredients seperately. I realize that could have been the source of my problems, but the dough was fully incorporated as evidenced by the even taste of the cookies. I would appreciate any constructive criticism! I also agree that cookies (at least mine) were not very aesthetically pleasing. For me, this was due to the excess confectioner's sugar on the cookies. It comes out looking like dried, crackled glaze. I also found the end product to be rather fragile and prone to easy breakage or crumbling. The same was true when I was rolling out the dough; the cookies were *very* fragile; I needed a dough scraper to lift them off the rolling surface as well. Aside from these mechanical problems, they do taste great, which genuinely surprised and pleased me. I would make these again for that reason alone, but I would probably try to fix the breakage problems.
