  1. Delicious!!! They cook a little flat but the dough itself is fabulous. I could hardly get it into the oven! But anyway three stars because I myself am stupid. I printed it out and began cooking it for a thing I had that day and then came to 'Chill overnight'. I spazzed cut corners and - Read more ...
  2. I wasn't thrilled with these. They are fine if you HAVE to have something sweet, but I have been experimenting to find the perfect soft chocolate cookies, and these are not it.

  3. Accidentally added the confectioner's sugar to the batter. I still rolled each dough ball in confectioner's sugar after it was chilled. I thought it was still delicious. These cookies have a hint of a great brownie with the texture of a cookie.
  4. Amazing recipe. Very little effort and great results. I cut the sugar by 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup chocolate chips. I didn't use the powdered sugar either. I also tried making them on non-stick aluminum foil. Worked perfect.

  8. OMG these cookies are so GOOD!!! ive been making them so much now. they r my families fave cookies now and they keep requesting them
  9. I think this recipe is great. The people at work love it. It is easy to make. I have made it many times.
