    I made this recipe almost as-is, but added the specks from half a vanilla bean to the cookies and the other half of the vanilla bean to the filling. I also added ~1/3 tsp. vanilla extract to each. Without vanilla I think these would be sweet but bland. I added a spoonful of coconut oil to the chocolate glaze too. The chestnut flavor is mostly lost in all the sugar and butter - I think using just plain chestnut creme as a filling would be better (if you like chestnuts). Also: USE GOOD BUTTER!

    It says to use an electric mixer, but is it possible to just use a regular whisk and mix the ingredients together by hand??

    This recipe is fantastic - everyone loves it and it's my go-to cookie recipe now. I didn't have chestnut cream so I replaced it with Amarula (a Baileys-like liquor). Exceptional! I think Baileys would work as a replacement as well.

    Dear Martha I just made these cookies (29/01/2011 - 07:49pm) and they came out just perfect. And as a plus, it looks just like the picture (which seldom ever occurs with my baking). I love this recipe! Andi Ungerer (South Africa - Durban)

    I cannot believe that back in September, 2008 I commented on this recipe and questioned the amount of chocolate. Maybe the recipe was been coreected but it is clear to me that it is 6 ounces of semi-sweet cholate squares or for a richer deeper cholate flavor, use 6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate. Think I will make them again after a trip to World Foods. Mykele

    I've found 'creme de marron', which is a sweetened chestnut puree, at specialty grocery stores or European style markets. I've used the French brand Clement Faugier and it comes in a 15.5 ounce can.

    I don't know what chestnut cream is or where I can buy it. Can someone help with this information?

    This recipe is also in the "Cookies" book, the amount of semisweet chocolate is 6oz., and the yield is 1 1/2 dozen; about 18 cookies.
