    These cookies were crunchy and yummy. But I think if I were going to fill them I'd reduce the sugar just a bit.

    Don't make the cookie part the day you want to eat them. The cookie part should be baked a day ahead and allowed to sit. They change in flavor overnight quite a bit. The 1.5 inch icecream scoop size is way too big also. A ball of dough measuring about an inch flattens to about 1.75 inches, and results in a cookie about 2 inches. This is a better size. Bake them for the lesser amount of time, until the dough has just deflated. The longer they are iced, the chewier they'll become.

    I was dismayed about the amount of sugar called for... and baking them I realize they have a terrible, crystalline texture from all that sugar. When you bite them they are hard, crumbly, and don't even taste very good. What a waste of sugar, butter, and cocoa! I was going to give these as gifts but they are going to end up in the garbage. I'm very suprised that a Martha Stewart recipe could turn out so poorly.

    I always add a pinch of salt to every dessert recipe even when it does not call for it, however Martha being a perfectionist we do expect her recipes to be perfect,

    You are right, the salt is missing and I remember the salt because the guest Martha had on the show poured the salt in instead of using the spoon...suppose I shall just have to buy the cookbook :D I've been looking for an excuse and now I have one!!

    I was wondering about salt... There is no salt on the ingredients list, but it says to add salt with dry ingredients.
