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. Read More

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. They bake really flat and just have too much of a sweet cocoa-y flavor. I did find what I was looking for however in the recipe called "Soft Chocolate Cookies" on this site. Those were 5 stars and had great texture flavor! That is the recipe I will be saving to my recipe box! Read More

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 stuck it in the freezer for 30 minutes. That worked. YUM Read More

Bland? Nu uh! They get a little messy when you're rolling them into balls but they're definitely well worth the trouble. I added some chopped pecans and they taste just like my grandma's brownies. Be sure to spray your pans though (even the non-stick ones) as they do tend to stick. Read More

This is a good basic recipe for such a cookie and does taste like a brownie but is chewier and of course a little drier.... the basic recipe also does need a little more cocoa and so I added some extra.... This cookie is best cooked so the middle is still "raw" and thus it cools to fudgy.... best cooked like "chewy" chocolate chip cookies.... also good with chocolate frosting drizzled on top or sandwiched in between too cookies.... then it is extra chocolate richness! I also mixed the cofectioner's sugar sprinkled on top with cocoa. Tastes great and extra "brownie-like" with the walnuts. Read More

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. Read More

This cookie recipe was good although it is like the title says its more of a brownie than a cookie. I added chocolate chips instead of nuts and it was delicious.. although my dad thought they were uncooked in the middle... Read More
