These are very easy and flavorful cookies. I used dark chocolate chips in the cookies and dark chocolate bar for the icing. I took some to my neighbor and she said that they were fantastic. I will be making these again.

These were the blandest cookies I have ever made. The only redeeming factor was that I quartered the recipe for a test batch so I didn't waste too many ingredients.

I have been making these cookies since the recipe was first printed way back in 1998. They are delicious.

What a nice addition to any Cookie Tray. Chocolate Chip Short Bread Cookie is the perfect description. The taste is as delicate and the texture. I added some chopped pecans to mine and I also used regular sized Chocolate chips. Baked on parchment paper. Bake time is right on. I especially enjoyed the crispy edges. I made up just 1/2 of the recipe. Perfect for just the hubby and myself. These are just Plain Good ! They are slightly crumbly but are great to work with. Had no problem using my small cookie scoop.JanieTaste of Home Volunteer Field Editor.

Agree with the other posters, this is very much a shortbread cookie. But it is delicious! And very easy to make!

I made these but changed the recipe from one cup of sugar to a cup and a half and instead of using vanilla extract I used maple and they are so delicious I love this recipe because it is so versatile... I drizzled white chocolate and dark chocolate on them and my family is now addicted! :)

Disappointed. Very dry. I agree with the other reviewers that they are more like a shortbread with chocolate chips. Not like a butter cookies at all. Won't make again.
