    These are lovely, soft, tasty cookies and so easy to make! I made them without the choc chips for my husband who is vegan as they are dairy & egg free, and the whole family enjoyed them! Will definitely be making them again.  -  16 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Yummy & Easy to make! I did these without the peanut butter and they were yummy. Nice and chuncie on the outside and gooey inside.  -  20 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This is a distinctive cookie and the result is quite enjoyable. The texture is more like that of a blondie, just in a cookie shape. I followed the recipe and instructions exactly and enjoyed the final product. This recipe is deceiving in that it seems simply (due to the few ingredients), but is actually hard to do correctly, because the dough is very dry. If the chef over mixes, the glutens will become tough and ruin the cookie.  -  17 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
