I brought these to work and made sure I had taken at least two for myself, which was a good thing since they were all gone in less than two hours (and there were about 30 of them).

These took me a few tries.  The first time I made them, it was on a whim.  I decided spontaneously during my transit home that I was going to bake cookies.  I had an idea, and a hope that it would turn out good.  I threw the ingredients together, jotting down notes as I went, and tossed the batch in the oven hoping for the best.

The result was good.  The taste was amazing, and I definitely had to stop myself from eating the whole thing, but the consistency wasn’t as cookie-like as I had hoped.  I love soft, chewy cookies, but these were a little too soft and they did not hold together very well.

So I tweaked a few ingredients and tried again.  And when I pulled them out of the oven, they were completely flat.  Not the desired effect I was looking for!  I wanted the same taste but better consistency.

So I tweaked it yet again, and chilled the dough this time.  That did the trick! They were a nice soft cookie, but still crisp around the edges.  And the flavor is delicious!
