    I loved this recipe. I substituted three ingredients and they still tasted like chocolate cookies. I got 26.

    I would definitely take cassandra174's recommendation of refridgerating the dough at LEAST 30 min. Mine was still warm at the bottom of the bowl but workable. Yummy and very popular with my co-workers.
