At the downtown Chicago law firm where I work, we often bring in goodies for special occasions. When co-workers hear I've baked these melt-in-your-mouth cookies, they make a special trip to my floor to sample them. Best of all, these crisp, buttery treats can be made in no time. —Janis Gruca, Mokena, Illinois

"I made these but changed the recipe from one cup of sugar to a cup and a half and instead of using vanilla extract I used maple and they are so delicious I love this recipe because it is so versatile... I drizzled white chocolate and dark chocolate on them and my family is now addicted! :)"

"Disappointed. Very dry. I agree with the other reviewers that they are more like a shortbread with chocolate chips. Not like a butter cookies at all. Won't make again."

"I made the recipe as stated and it is very good. Nice buttery shortbread-like cookie! I dipped about half of the cookie in melted chocolate, then coated the bottoms as well. As one reviewer said, it is a very versatile recipe - and easy to put together. Thanks for sharing, Janis!"

"These cookies are delicious & easy to make. It is a shortbread cookie with a very buttery taste. I haves used toffee bits instead of chocolate chips so this recipe has some flexibility. I have been making these for years. Five stars!"

"I have used this recipe from time to time and I added vanilla extract: 1 tsp. OR substitute lemon or almond extract if you wish to have a MORE flavorful cookie! I used regular chocolate chips and I greased the baking sheets before placing dough on the baking sheets. Thank you for this recipe, Janice Gruca! DELowenstein"

"These are great cookies! I like to switch things up ar home and this cookie has a different taste than a normal chocolate chip cookie. It took me no time to whip up because I always have these ingredients at home. I did shorten the baking time a couple minutes though...Great with milk!!"
