I make this recipe often for gifts and it's very popular! I don't add the chocolate chips - with a good quality cocoa chips are overkill. As with any kind of soft-style cookie the trick is to cook it until the top is just set. It will continue to harden out of the oven and end up the perfect texture.
I like this recipe a lot. I only add a lit bit of milk (1/8 cup) at the end to soften the dough, so it spreads easily while at the oven. I don't mix the chocolate chips, instead I put five or six of them on top of the dough balls. And the most important thing of all: to bake soft cookies you need to use insulated pan sheet, so the cookies don't burn on the bottom. I don't have insulated pan sheet, so I use 2 regular pans, one on top of each other, then I put a parchment paper. I ake them for 10 minutes only, and then I slide the parchment paper into a cooling rack.
I liked this recipe but based on the reviews made a few adjustments. Seeing that in general the dough falls and leaves a crunch cookie I added about 1/3 cup of peanut butter (I used crunchy). I also put peanuts in mine instead of chocolate chips. I found it also helped to bake at 340 for the ten mins instead of 350 and please make sure your oven rack is in the very top position so that the source of heat isn't right on the bottoms. I did use the confectioners' sugar. Someone mentioned it wasn't in the directions but it is. The directions say to sprinkle it on when the cookies were warm. I found it added just the right little extra touch of sweetness. Mine turned out soft and very yummy.
I was very disappointed. My picky son doesn't like crunchy anything so I was excited to see a soft chocolate cookie recipe. This wasn't ANYTHING like cake it came out thin and crispy. The ones I took out early fell apart on the the cooling rack and still crisped up when they cooled.
These are the best cookies ever!! So soft and delicious! I followed the recipe except for omitting the chocolate chips (just because i didnt have any!) And i rolled the dough balls in the powdered sugar before baking them. They came out PERFECT and delicious!! I will be making this recipe again and again!!
