These cookies are a great, soft, chocolatey small batch perfect for a small family. They have a great chewy and soft texture and a delicious flavor! I got the recipe from a good friend a month ago and have made them four time since then. Easy to prepare and even easier to eat!

You were right! These are chocolaty, soft, and chewy! I let the first batch cook too long and they were crispy but still good. The second batch came out just right! And I ate them all up! Thanks!

Perfect recipe! Just what I was looking for, as we only had 1 stick of butter on hand. We did use the cocoa powder, stirring it into the flour before incorporating it (we did use one tablespoon less flour than was called for). 3/4 cup semi-sweet choc. chips was just right for our taste, and we didin't use any white choc. chips at all. Also stirred in 1 tbsp. of ground flaxseed and 1/2 cup rolled oats for a warm,oaty, chocolatey bit of yumminess!
