Reviewed chocolate-hazelnut drop cookies

I made these twice, because I did make a mistake measuring the sugar the first time. The mistake was better than the recipe as written. The cookies didn't hold together, and had a grainy, sandy texture.

Way too much water for the strawberry sauce in the recipe. After 10 minutes, it's just strawberries in water. After 30 minutes, it's soup. "

Sorry, but these were a total bust. I followed the recipe exactly, but the dough was so runny that the puffs didn't hold their shape, and came out of the oven looking like flying saucers.

Bobby, are you someone's "yia-yia?" Because this recipe tastes like it was made by a Greek grandmother -- and there is no compliment higher than that! It was so easy, fabulously delicious, comforting, easy, incredibly inexpensive, and even healthful. By far, the best gigantes recipe I've found thus far -- and I've tried quite a few!
