They were absooutely delicious! They are nice and chewy and very addicting! I had to add about 3/4 cup of flour to the dough, though, because the dough wasn't thick enough and didn't cook right on my test round. Over all, VERY good!

Interesting cookies. I've never made chocolate chip cookies with melted butter before. When all the ingredients were together, I found that the dough wasn't sticking to itself well enough. I had to add about a tsp-tbsp of water to get the dough into balls better. Once it cooked, the tops of the cookies were crunchy, almost like sugar had been sprinkled on top! They taste great!
