I couldn't wait to try this recipe but I have to say they were not that great. I agree with another comment that they lacked flavor. I also found them to be crispy and I prefer a more chewy cookie. I would also like to say that the recipe is a bit confusing when you read the instructions it sounds as though your suppose to crack the eggs into the butter like I did but actually you should be cracking the eggs into the first bowl???

I was so excited to find this recipe after watching Diane Sawyer's interview with Teri Hatcher and thought her cookies looked so delicious. However, I was disappointed in this recipe. I followed the directions exactly and my cookies turned out a little more crisp than I like them. I tried baking them for a shorter time on the second batch, but they were still a little crisp for my taste. I also felt they didn't have much flavor. I didn't add the cinnamon, perhaps that would have given the cookie a better flavor. I gave the cookies to the kids and didn't say a word, but they noticed right away that they weren't the same cookies I normally make. They told me they liked my original chocolate chip cookie recipe better and I have to agree with them. Thanks for posting the recipe, I did enjoy giving them a try!
