Chocolate Java Dreams
I spread the dough out in a foil lined jelly-roll pan. It just filled the pan nicely. Then baked it for 20 minutes in the 350 degree oven. As soon an I took the pan from the oven, I sprinkled the chips over the cookies. In about 5 minutes, they softened so I could spread them over the top. Then while still warm, I cut the cookies in squares. All done, no rolling into balls, and no melting the chips and drizzeling. Hurry-up, but still good. Thanks for the recipe.
The best ever !!
I've tried several recipes for cookies like these and they have been ok. This recipe is really great. I was afraid to try this recipe because of the other ones. Sure glad I did. They was so easy to make. I did put more frosting on mine. The family thought they was great. This recipe is a keeper.
