    These cookies look delicious! I think I’m going to need a glass of milk and about 5-6 of these cookies maybe more.

    I don’t think I’ve ever actually tasted lofthouse cookies! Odd, considering the humongous sweet tooth I have. I can’t wait to try these.

    They look great, but I REALLY hate rolling and cutting out cookies. I wonder if the dough sets up stiff enough to chill it in a log shape and do them as a slice and bake? If so, I’d make the entire recipe and freeze logs of dough to slice and bake whenever I need a chocolate fix.

      The dough is fairly soft but if you got it really chilled, shaped it into a log, and then popped it into the freezer before slicing I think that might work. Let me know if you try!
