Breadcrumb Cookies finally made

I had these on my wish list since I read it in the Complete Tighwad book but I hadn't made them so I decided to change that today.  I mixed up everything very easily and it looked really thick batter (just a heads up that it isn't a yummy batter like choc chip cookies so don't bother trying to eat it).  I have a few improvements that I will make next time but I would totally make these again.  I made the first batch per the directions and then tasted the final product.  It was nice and crispy on the outside with a slight chocolate flavor but not a real deep flavor.  Good news is that my son liked them too :)

On the second batch, I put a little candy piece on top.  Those turned out really pretty and I think that my son will really like them since it is his favorite candy.
These would be great breakfast cookies because they are very bland.  I don't drink coffee but I am sure that people woud love to dunk them.  Funny note that I looked at the first post I made this recipe and I made a note on the recipe to use almond or peppermint extract which is what I thought after I made the recipe per the directions.  To make them more dessert like, I would add some almond or peppermint extract.  I think that would add a yummy flavor that wasn't there with just vanilla and cocoa powder.  I think that I would also add chocolate chips (or M&Ms) which would be the big addition because they would make them much more chocolate.  Both of these things would make a cookies that I would be much more happy eating!!  I hope that you like the recipe and try the modifications too :)
