I came back to rerate my original review because these cookies were the biggest hit at our Sedar. Everyone (gluten-free people & none alike) really enjoyed these cookies. It's very hard to find good gluten free recipes, let alone ones that are for Passover, but this one turned out pretty well! Tastes like a chocolate brownie...in a crunky cookie shell. I added extra cocoa in mine (by accident) but it worked. Thanks so much for this recipe that will be a staple for every family gathering (not just Passover).
