Recipe Comments & Reviews

Just made these and they were delicious and easy to make. Skipped the drizzle and just used all the chips in the cookies.
Awesome, easy to follow recipe so worth the time to make. Followed recipe exactly except I didn't bother doing the drizzle on top, just added the chips for that right into the batter. KEEPER FOR SURE!
The cookies were excellent and easy to make. I had to bake them for only 10 minutes. The first pan turned a little darker then I would have like them.
The only thing that wasn't clear was the drizzle on the top of the cookies. The recipe didn't indicate what was shown in the picture with the recipe.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This is a Reynolds Kitchens recipe and so I checked with them. We are now in the process of updating the recipe to include the information about the drizzle. In the meantime the drizzle is 1/2 cup of the white baking chips, melted. Drizzle over the cooled cookies. Thanks again.

These are very good cookies! This recipe is definitely a keeper! I will be adding this one to my christmas cookie recipes. Thank u for this wonderful recipe.
My husband and daughter loved these. My daughter said best I ever made.
These cookies look tasty but i do not see the ingrediants for the drizzle (frosting) that is on the cookie.

The drizzle is a simple powdered sugar and water glaze mixture. Begin with 1 cup powdered sugar and add water to it until the mixture is the correct drizzling consistency.

These are the bomb, everyone loved them.
I add one cup of macadamia nuts to the batter. I bake gigantic cookies to sell at our State Farmers Market and these are a hit. I use a half cup scoop and bake the cookies for 13 minutes at 375. They will look underbaked but they are not.
Absolutely a wonderful cookie.
Have been making these cookies for about 6 months now and EVERYONE wants the recipe. I recommend you try it, you will receive as many compliments as I do. I now double the recipe, as I'm sure you will also.
Great tasting cookie, you don't even need the drizzle on top. They're a little flatter than I was hoping for, but overall very easy and delicious.
These are the best cookies the white chocolate go so great together, you should really make this recipe!!
