"I had everything but the chips so I had to go without and they are delicious. I followed the recipe except added a teaspoon of almond extract and used pecans and walnuts. these. Thank you."

"Excellent double chocolate cookie! It has the perfect combination of crunchy outside and chewy inside. As recommended I doubled the cinnamon. I also wanted to mention that my first batch did not spread out very much while baking which is probably why another reviewer said they were crumbly. On the remaining batches I rolled the tablespoon of dough into balls, placed on the cookie sheet and pressed down to slightly flatten the dough before baking. These needed to bake the full 12 minutes. They turned out perfectly...very delicious!"

"I just baked these cookies and they are the best chocolate cookie I have ever tasted. I used 1/2tsp. of cinnamon and 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I sprinkled the tops of the cookies with coarse sugar before baking and they are fantastic. I got 7 dozen cookies from this recipe."
