Reviews for Soft Chocolate Cookies
"Wonderfully soft and flavorful. Tastes like a brownie, only in cookie form!"
"easy to make, very soft, and very good flavor"
"These cookies are amazing, I make them and even my chocolate hating father loves them."
"Can't find anything negative to say about these. They are not overly sweet which from looking at the ingredients I wouldn't have guessed. The vanilla is a little prominant but I think it works."
