Well, I'm not at all sure why my cookies didn't flatten while baking but I really don't care. They are totally decadent and dream cookies come true. I made 2 dozen which ask for 1 1/4 cups of flour I stopped at the 1 cup as I didn't want the dough any stiffer, used 1/3 cup of egg white and replaced the chocolate chips with cinnamon chips. The result is a glorious deep chocolate cookie with a wonderful undertone of espresso. They are soft, moist (and while still warm) gooey. In other words heaven on a plate.
These just did not work for me. they were very dry. I must have done something wrong. Sorry
as usual, KAF's recipes are awesome.
