    I made these cookies as a treat for my daughter and I have to say that this recipe came out better than any chocolate cookie recipe I have ever tried. The cookies were just the right consistency of chewy and crispy. They were just like bakery cookies! The only thing I might change next time is the amount of vanilla. The taste of vanilla seemed a little too much for me. I like the idea of adding a little almond extract and I'll try that next time. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

    These truly are excellent cookies! This recipe is very similar to another one here at 'zaar, except this one uses Crisco. The Crsico makes the cookie just a bit crisper rather than chewy. Sometimes my family wants crispy and sometimes they want chewy, so now I can keep them all happy! I added 1/2 tsp. almond extract for extra flavor. Perfect! Thanks for sharing!

    These came out fantastic!! I used about 2 loaded tablespoons per 'big' cookie. They spread out so nice - about 3" across. If someone wants an even bigger cookie, just add a tablespoon more per cookie. I will definitely be using this recipe again. One thing to note - in the middle of making these, I discovered I only have about 1/2 cup of brown sugar left so with that and the 1/2 cup of white sugar - these were plenty sweet for me. Pam
