I didn't have chocolate chips, so I made it without and it still turned out awesome! Per other reviews I cooked for less time (8mins) and rolled them in powdered sugar before baking. They turned out yummy! Even my husband who isn't a fan of chocolate said he thought they were really good with a positive emphasis on really. Enjoy! Read More

These were okay. Not terrific and not as chocolatey as I expected. I doubt I ll make again-still searching for a really good chocolate cookie. Read More

Based on all the positive reviews, I doubled the recipe. So glad I did! They were delicious! I was concerned when I read a review say they were crumbly, messy and didn't hold together. I scooped them onto the cookie sheet with an ice cream scoop and didn't have any of those issues. Thank you! This recipe will be a regular in my baking. Read More

This is one of the best cookie recipes I've found on the site. Very chocolatey and delicious! Easy to make and taste great. Might use white chocolate chips next time for some visual flair. Read More

These cookies are easy to put together, bake up beautifully, and taste delicious. Plus I love that the recipe is scaled down and doesn't make too many. I got 18 decent sized cookies out of this recipe. Read More

it’s rly nice and soft on the inside, with a chewy outside. i’d add maybe 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. i did. to my second batch and it came out much better. without vegetable oil it was a little hard. Read More
