I had bought a cheap little cookie press and couldn't wait to try it out. I definitely need practice, but these are a keeper! I cooked mine a minute or two longer, because I prefer them crunchy. To me they tasted like the crunchy edge of a brownie, delicious!
Certainly the right consistency for a cookie press.<br/><br/>As for flavor, these were like chocolate sawdust.<br/><br/>Gonna continue looking for another recipe--or tweak this one to include cocoa crispies and chocolate milk...
My DH asked me to make a chocolate cookie like a Maurice Lendell cookie from his childhood. He said I nailed it with this recipe. I added a dollop of chocolate frosting using the Amanda Milk Chocolate Frosting recipe.
5 stars for ease of making and taste. I don't know how I managed to end up with a mixture resembling soft smooth playdoh but it rolled easily into balls (no cookie press) and baked up in 5 mins, just like the recipe says. I was amazed. I was actually seeking a crisp cookie - didn't read thru all the reviews - but these are lovely. I will be icing them.
Good taste but I had trouble with the texture. I aslo had to add another egg.
I don't know if its because it was the first time I made them, but these cookies turned out really crumbly, the texture was more like sand. I think that next time I'll add another egg.
Just made these to add to our Christmas cookie tray and they are delicious! I drizzled them with melted white chocolate and everyone loves them.
These cookies were great! I lost my cookie press in the last move so had to improvise - I added an extra tbsp of flour then rolled the cookie dough out & used a small round cutter. They came out perfect at 8 mins. DS decided how he wanted them decorating & then 'supervised' as I decorated them! As soon as I get another press I will have to make these again...if not sooner! Thanks for the recipe!
I made these quickly and don't have a cookie press...just made balls and flattened them out...they are pretty good.
Great cookies! I left mine unglazed and they were thicker than usual spritzes (need to work on my cookie pressing skills), and they were delicious without being overly sweet. Definitely enjoyed it and will make them again!
