Well I cannot rate these as I did not even get a taste tester, however YOUare a big hit for the Annual Men's Fishing Trip. My job is too make over 10 doz cookies for the guys. I picked your recipe as the suprise recipe this year. It will now become a regular for the trips. M husband, BIL. and their friend all called me to say THANK YOU!!! and they love the suprise cookie. they of course get their regular choco chip and choco fudge macadamia, now yours is to be added to the trip. Keep more coming as I need a new suprise for next year. Simple to make, I did not have to freeze them or store for long. I did not use the powdered milk but did add in 1 tsp of vanilla.

These tasted great, but I added a cup of powdered milk and couldn't get them to stick together.
