"I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them. "

    Mine tasted great but didn't hold their shape in the oven. They were so crumbly, many fell apart when rolling in the cocoa/sugar coating. The only thing I did differently was I didn't have milk chocolate so I grated semi-sweet-chocolate instead. Do you think that's why they turned out too crumbly? Does milk chocolate melt more and hold the cookie together? Anyhow, the taste was very good so I gave it 5 stars and it made twice as many (48) as the recipe said.

    These are really delicious cookies. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but my cookies kind of melted in the oven and didn't hold their shape. I halved the recipe, so maybe my measurements were off. The flavor is so good, I'll try making a whole batch soon. Thanks for posting.

    I divided these between my husband, and my two daughters boyfriends ...... rave rave reviews, and they all want more, NOW. I didnt leave them in the fridge as long as I should have, because I was in a bit of a hurry, so one or two semi-melted, but for the most part, they were perfect. i will make allowances for the longer chilling time next time (next weekend!). Excellent biscuits, oh yes, we also dont know what they are like after a few days, they dont last that long!!!! Thank you BK, loved them, made (belatedly) for ZWT8
