I always make these Double Chocolate Espresso Nut Cookies pretty big in size, almost every time I make them.
Depending on the size you decide upon you will know when they are done because the tops will be cracked and the middle or center of each cookie will look under done.
The key, I believe, is letting these cookies cool on the pan, on top of your oven. Do not over bake them, if at all possible.
