I've had several people tell me these are the best cookies they ever ate. The perfect chewy brownie cookie with the crisp edges. Delicious!

The flavor of these cookies is oh-so amazing! We first tried them were still warm from the oven. The chocolaty gooeyness was to-die-for. And guess what... after they cooled they were still equally addictive!
