The cookies taste good, but not what I was expecting. They are not "big" in size, but rather flavor. I used generous scoops of dough and after watching the first pan was able to fit 15 on a half sheet pan. They don't spread much, but are thick. I did use french vanilla & liked the addition. The amount of cocoa colors the dough, but doesn't impart much of a chocolatey taste. Made for Pick A Chef Fall '09.
