"Yummy. For the glaze I melted chocolate chips with tablespoon crisco shortening. Got a crunch chocolate glaze."

"Thank you for all of your thoughtful posts. Because so many people had a problem with the recipe we retested it in our test kitchen. We did not have a problem with the dough being too dry - it was moist, scooped easily onto the baking sheet and baked up nicely. A couple of things to note just in case - the recipe calls for 5 tablespoons butter not 5 teaspoons, we used Dannon brand reduced-fat yogurt and combined the yogurt mixture with an electric hand-held mixer. We also used a mixer when adding the dry ingredients to the yogurt mixture.We did find an error with the mixing method for the glaze - it turned out lumpy. Instead, in a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and cocoa. Stir in milk and extract until smooth. Gradually stir in melted chocolate. The recipe will be updated on the website to reflect the change shortly.I apologize for the error and any inconvenience it may have caused.Sincerely,Peggy Woodward, RDFood EditorHealthy Cooking"

"Dough was too thick to mix, so I added an extra spoonful of yogurt. The cookies just became very flat in the oven. When I made the glaze at first, it was horrible. It was not drizzle-able at all. I decided to just melt chocolate and drizzle it on top.The cookies taste okay, but I would not make this recipe again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 17, 2011

"I had no problem with the dough sticking when rolling into balls. My problem was with the glaze. I followed the directions exactly and it produced 2x as much as needed to drizzle and it was much runnier than expected. I expected a crunch chocolate drizzle coating. If I make these again I would omit the other ingredients in the glaze and just drizzle melted chocolate, sprinkle with the crushed peppermint, and let the chocolate harden"
