I wanted a chocolate cookie to top with ice cream and always had this recipe sitting in my recipe box. I have to say, this is like a brownie in cookie form and it is so good with a small scoop of ice cream on top of it! I had one by itself and it was so fudgy and delicious! I melted the chocolate on defrost mode in the microwave (keep an eye on it!) and whisked it smooth and immediately started to make the recipe. I stuck the batter in the freezer for about an hour and made them into small balls. I did not flatten them, they flattened out themselves while baking forming these beautiful crackles all over the cookie from the powdered sugar. They smelt so good when they came out the oven and tasted even better! Thank for posting.
We all LOVE these cookies. Used my cookie scoop, put in bag of powdered sugar to coat, baked at 350 for 10. Like a little brownie cookie. Soft, chocolaty and just sweet enough.They came out perfect. Didn't have unsweetened so I subtituted bittersweet, with sm. amount of cocoa powder and oil, and a tad less sugar. I'm keeping this recipe!!! Thank you, Carole Rue. I've made these before but couldn't find the recipe I used. We thought better than the cake box version.
These cookies are so good and would be great for the holiday gift trays. I plan to make them again during the holidays!
