"This one of several recipes relying upon 'Basic cookie Dough Base'. #1) Cherry Surprise Cookies; #2) chocolate Mallow Cookies; #3) Jelly sandwich Cookies; #4) Sugar Cookies; #5) Crumb-Topped Date Bars; #6) Basic cookie Dough; #7) Raisin Filling. A plate with most of these cookies is at the bottom of the cookie Dough Recipe!"

"I used Hershey's Kisses and half the basic cookie dough and still tgis yielded only 28 cookies. They are very good though so I will be making more next week for the family."

"The dough doesn't like to stick to the chocolates, so you have to work it around them, but they are good! I used the Hershey's meltaways and right out of the oven, they were really gooey!"

"That's strange because I typed "Basic cookie Dough" into the search bar and it was the first recipe to come up."

"Altho I haven't tried the cookies, I wanted too- but could't find the basic recipe. I extremely dislike it when you have to search somewhere else to find the rest of the recipe."
