I made these cookies following the recipe exactly and they turned out great! The flavor is like a brownie, but it has the texture of a cookie. The dough was a little difficult to make because my KitchenAid was too small to be able to mix all of the flour in. I ended up dumping it into a larger bowl and using the hand mixer to finish the job. I was able to get 26 4in, thick-cut snowflake cookies and well over a couple dozen 2in Christmas tree cookies from the dough. Will definitely make again!
