These are by far the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. This is my "go-to" recipe whenever I need to bake cookies for my family my friends or myself! A few changes I make: I refrigerate or freeze the cookie dough so that it is very cold. Then I roll each piece of cookie dough in powdered sugar place the cookie on the cookie sheet and press down with a glass dipped in powdered sugar. I bake the cookies for a few less minutes than the recipe calls for. This way the cookies come out a little crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside and stay that way even after they cool.
I doctored these up a bit. First I left out the chocolate chips so that I'd be left with a spice cookie. Then I added more spice-- 1 t. cinnamon 1/2 t. nutmeg 1/4 t. cloves and 1/4 t. ginger. I also mixed the butter-sugar-egg mixture on high until it was really light and frothy before I added the dry mixture. The cookies turned out flat yet chewy--very good texture and taste. I got 30 cookies out of this and baked them for 10 minutes.
Very good chocolate chip cookies. Only spicy because I added 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper though - otherwise they'd be fairly non-spicy but good chocolate chip cookies. Chewy crunchy good cookies and with my addition truly zippy! Other than that followed recipe to letter.
These were alright cookies. I omitted almond extract and cloves because I didn't have them and increased the nutmeg and cinnamon by half. I also added 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper as suggested by another reviewer. I didn't find them flat at all and 10 minutes was perfect baking time. Next time I would increase all the spices by another half and keep the cayenne.
Oh yeah! I'm always looking for a good chocolate chip cookie and these are off the hook! I doubled the nutmeg and cinnamon; only a few drop of the almond extract. I had semi-sweet mini morsels on hand and they worked great. This recipe is a keeper!
The first time I made these it was exactly as written good but not great. The next time I used 1/4 tsp; of each spice better but still not great. Finally I added a heaping 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper and these cookies are worthy of hall of fame status. Everybody loved them and begged for the recipe. They were amazed at the secret ingredient.
