Michael S.: These were hit at a cookie party, winning "best tasting" although I thought the coffee and cocoa nibs made them a little bitter. Easy to make, and a nice complement to other, very sweet, cookies.
Lucy: The recipe was missing a key ingredient (eggs!), which I luckily saw in the comments before I finished making these. Overall, I the cherries added good flavor but I wasn't wild about the cookies.
Tamara: Hmm, celebrity comparison...gotta go with Scott Brown...looks good but unsuccessful and surprisingly uninteresting considering the raw materials.
Judith: Despite the delightful array of ingredients that had to purchased special for this recipe (not a cocoa nib, white chocolate chip or a dried cherry to be found in my well stocked pantry), the real joy came from eating the decadent cookie dough uncooked. I wouldn't refuse one of these easy to make baked cookies if I were on a desert island, but sorry Charlie, unless I can eat them raw truffle style, I'm going to pass..
Cassie S.: No eggs, no problem! While I'm still unclear whether the omission of eggs from the recipe was intentional, the cookies baked to a desirable consistency & the cocoa nibs added great texture and flavor. I'd be curious to see if they turned out even better if an egg or two was added.
Diane P: FABULOUS sweet and tart! Great with champagne- love them!
Stephanie W.: These had the rich chocolatey flavor of the crusty edge of a brownie, and a tangy-sweet chew from the cherries. A little dry though, so get the milk ready!
AnnaBee: I was surprised not to see eggs included in the recipe (should have known better from the magazine title...) but it turned out great. Would have used more coffee though.
Angelia B: This one's a dud either due to an incomplete or a bad recipe. There are a wealth of great cookie recipes out there--spend your time (and ingredients!) on one of those.
Janloay: Delicious--intense chocolate, not too sweet, love the cherries! The only change we made was to use 1 1/2T of dough instead of 2.
