Followed recipe exactly. Mine would not slice. I will use mini chocolate chips if I make them again. Wound up making them into balls then flattened before baking. Good but not great flavor and texture.

Taste good but don’t know if I did something wrong. Rolled them up and refrigerated them for about an hour but they would not hold up when I sliced them-fell apart. I rolled them into a ball and baked them. Very good taste

I used butter instead of shortening-made a soft dough that stuck to the waxed paper. Would chill the dough 10 min. Or so next time. There will be a next time cause these are great!

Add 1/4 tsp baking powder to make a slightly puffy cookie. also divide dough in half before rolling to make smaller tea size cookies. Makes 40 tea cookies

Delicious! These cookies looked and tasted like they came from a fancy bakery! Definitley a keeper. (Hint: Learn from my mistake - don't chill the roll too long or the melted chocolate becomes too hard to cut!)
