These are awesome! I added boiled 1 cup of raisins for 3 minutes, cooled them, and added them to the recipe. I did not use nuts because of allergies. I also added 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla. This is a keeper!
delicious! I didn't find them dry at all- chewy and chocolatey! I know my oven runs hot, and I found that only 7-8 minutes to bake was perfect.
These were pretty good. I just didn't like that the cookie was dry, somewhat crumbly, and kind of flavorless.
