Absolutely Horrible!! I wouldn't recommend to anyone to make them. I read the top comments thinking that they would turn out great... After tasting them I wen back to look if I had left an ingredient out and then read the further down comments, explaining they taste like cardboard.
These cookies are great! I took these to a church function and got many requests for the recipe. Some reviewers commented that they were greasy...yes, but I found that once I rolled them out in the flour they were perfect. They are not that sweet, but you find that some people (like my husband and others) prefer cookies this way. I will definitely be making these again. Yum!
This was an adorable idea! But the recipe should be sweeter. They were super fun to make, and they have a wonderful presentation! I like the taste of them, but you expect a chocolate cookie dipped in chocolate to taste sweeter that these did! My husband didn't like them at all (he used the term "cardboard" - uh oh!) But he said he would like them if they were sweeter. Perhaps some adjustments could be made? More sugar in the dough? Fully sweetened chocolate instead of semi-sweet to dip them in? (also, my dough was not greasy AT ALL. Perhaps a mistake?)
They are not real sweet, but they grow on you. They turn out really pretty, but are more like a shortbread type cookie. Good and fairly easy to make.
Quite simply, the worst cookie dough ever. Greasy, greasy, greasy - I actually came on the site to make sure the recipe I printed had not had the ingredient measurements updated. They are the same. I just threw out some pretty expensive ingredients! What a shame, because the photo of them looked so great!
