These on-the-go goodies are great to take along to the beach, a picnic or on vacation. They have the great flavor and texture of brownies in a cookie shape.

"The taste is good and I enjoy the chewy crunch. The only downside is the flat presentation. It helps a little if I keep them small."

"I followed the recipe to the "T" and they came out thin as a piece of paper. They tasted okay and chewy ."

MY REVIEW

"These cookies are great! They spread out thin but keep their circular shape. The best thing about them is they stay soft and chewy, even 2 days later. Still soft. They do have a brownie taste. I will definitely recommend these."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 21, 2012

"These cookies are not much to look at, but they taste great! Because the dough is so soft they spread out when baking and become very thin, but I wanted a chewy chocolate cookie, and that's definitely what I got! 2 cups of sugar seemed like a lot to me, so I did 1 cup of white sugar and 3/4 cup of brown, and they still taste great. Next time I make them I think I'll experiment with ways to keep the chewy-ness, but get them to stand up a bit more."
