Followed the recipe with cinnamon but no nuts. They flattened great. I noticed the bigger I made the cookie, the softer they were, but also more prone to breaking. Next time I make them, I will do a little more cinnamon and vanilla.

I loved the taste, and so did the kids! They did not flatten like the recipe even though I followed all details. They were rather hard too. Hmmm. We love the cinnamon flavor!! I don't feel like I am cheating when I eat these. That's dangerous.

This recipe is a keeper! I doubled the recipe, but omitted the maple extract because we didn't have any on hand but used about 1T. real maple syrup instead. I also omitted the cinnamon and nuts because of preference. I also used whole wheat pastry flour because that's what I had on hand. All considered, the flavor was rich and wonderful. The cookie spread as it baked so it looked like those pictured. Next time I double the recipe, I'll use less chocolate chips - maybe 1 1/4 cups total because the cookie was really sweet with a total of 2 cups semisweet choc chips. I'll be making this again for sure. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Kitten!
