These get a two from me because although they taste good, flavor isn't everything. I can get as good a taste from cookies that are far less complex, such as the anise scented fig date swirls. Also, they are overly sweet. Lastly, white chocolate chips do NOT melt and become runny enough to use as a striping glaze without added cream so you can make a gnache, and they don't say that in the recipe. The only reason I was able to figure that out is because I also make chocolate.
