Would make this again.
Hubby gives these 5 stars and asked me never to make them again. He can't stop eating them and tries to watch his weight. The combo of the egg whites and brown sugar on the top makes a really yummy and sort of chewy topping. 5 stars

I used margarine instead of shortening and whipped the eggs for about 5 minutes.

These cookies will definitely be on my cookies platter this year!

This was such a hit my very pregnant friend has asked me to make it again for her!

In terms of the egg whites you have to make sure that the beaters and bowl are squeaky clean - the slightest hint of grease and the whites won't stiffen. Plus chilling them helps too.

Love this website.

This cookie was so easy to make and is so delicious and very inexpensive. I will make these every year as part of my christmas cookie menu. They melt in your mouth. My first batch I didn't whip the egg whites enough but they still came out really good. The only tip I have is to ensure those egg whites are stiff! 5 stars

Amazing recipe, so easy to make. Added coconut for a bit of fun and it still was delicious. 5 stars

This is a great recipe and easy to put together - even for the person who isn't too adventurous when it comes to trying new recipes. It's chewy texture and the fact that it has lots of chocolate chips makes it a winner in my book. I've shared them with friends and each one loved Half-Ways.
I'm sending a copy of the recipe to my daughter who still asks for mom's recipes. Thanks for a great site. I'll be trying out more of your recipes.
5 stars

  A cookie baker in Vienna, Virginia  Dec 15, 2002
Would make this again.
Mine took more like 30 minutes to completely bake, and that's in a convection oven. They were much easier to cut after being cooled (I put the pan into the refrigerator for an hour or so). But very yummy, even after all that work! 4 stars

Would make this again.
They taste great and even greater when there still a little warm. YUMMM! They cut into bars better when totally cooled though. But if they're for just the family don't wait till cool. 5 stars
