These cookies were GROSS. I don't know why but mine turned out NOTHING like the picture or description. I used margarine because I didn't have butter but everything else I followed EXACTLY. The dough was very dry and the cookies were like powder when cooked. I kept lessening the time until I was only cooking them 3 minutes and they were STILL dried out. It was like eating plain cocoa and flour. They never puffed or flattened either so I have NO idea what happened. Very disappointing.

The best cookie. My family love these! All my kids' friends ask if I've made these great chewy chocolate cookies when they come over. I've passed this recipe on to my mom and brother who both love it, too. Thanks

My 6 year old daughter and I made these tonight the only thing we did different added white & semi-sweet chips to the batter. They were sooooo good and chewy and yummy - she usually only likes store bought cookies (weird kid - gets it from her fathers side of the family) but tonight before bed she requested the ones we made to dunk in her milk...surprize surprize - she actually ate them and didn't ask for her usual store bought favorites!!

These are absolutely gorgeous! I used a little less sugar in mine, and also threw in a few chocolate chips that I had. Sensational!

We made these at Christmas time and added peanut, chocolate chips and pecans to the batter and they were off the chain amazing! The first batch was gone very quickly and my kids and grandkids begged for a batch to eat for their trip back home so I obliged. They said it made their trip a little shorter because they ate cookies all the way back to NC. ha Thank you for an awesome recipe.

The flavor of these is amazing. I used margarine and cheap cocoa, and the flavor was absolutely fine. I don't quite understand the flattening effect. I wish they had the flavor AND the substance, because I'd eat one and then feel disappointed that there was so little there. I may try adding some baking powder next time to see if that's what they're missing. Otherwise, like I said, great flavor. I'll be working with this recipe. Thanks.

These were so, so good! They did have a taste very similar to a brownie, but the texture was a lot lighter and more cookie-like. This was such an easy and fun recipe with great results. Thanks!

I used el cheapo cocoa, but they still came out yummy. They were soft and almost brownie-like. I loved them, and I'm sure I'll make these again.
