These were just average as far as choc. chip cookies go. I only cooked them for 10 minutes per batch, but they weren't soft like I thought they should be. They were rather firm, but nice looking. Definitely taste better on the second day, when the butter flavor has a chance to come to the fore. I thought the dough was a bit dry, and it wasn't easy to keep the choc. chips from falling out of the cookie dough. I think I'll try this recipe as biscotti, since that is what the dough reminded me of. Thanks for sharing.
