MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2011

These cookies tasted very good and the recipe made a lot. They are a bit of work and the ingredients are a little expensive, so I think when I make these again, I'll do it as part of my holiday cookie baking.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2010

I loved these cookies! I definately will make them again! I halved the recipe, but didn't read the recipe through, and still made 4 12inch logs when I should have made 2 12inch logs. From each log I got 32 cookies, which was a grand total of 127 cookies for a half recipe(the whole recipe is suposed to make 180)! Since they were smaller, they were only 43.3 cal per cookie. Make sure you don't add any more liquid than nessesary to the dough. I added some water to the chocolate dough becuase I thought it looked to thick, but it was then hard to form into logs and when I cut the cookies it started to get a little soft. Also be careful to chop the chocolate and pecans pretty small if you do a half recipe and 172 cookies like I did or else when you cut them you may get a nut or piece of chocolate that is hard to cut through to make even cookies.
