These are delicious! They are definitely gooey after just cooking. I found that by the time they were completely cool they were soft, but no longer gooey. I have a super sweet tooth, so I think had these not been rolled in powder sugar I would have wanted them to be a little sweeter, but since they are: Yum! I mixed the cocoa into the dry mixture instead of the wet mixture to avoid clumping, otherwise I didn't change a thing. After mixing the "dough" looked like brownie batter, it was that liquidy. But fear not, chilling it does wonders and make it workable. I had a 1 5/8 oz (1.625 oz) scoop, which made them entirely too big so I tore them in half after scooping and they were just right. I got 34 cookies. Made for PAC Fall 2012.
