I thought these were very, very good, easy to make and I would recommend them. Like the other reviewer, I had made them smaller and baked them for 8 minutes, but other than that I followed the recipe. The flavor was great and the chocolate aftertaste was just right. The one thing I had hoped was that although I expected the cookie to be crispy, I had hoped the center might have a hint more of chewiness. That being said, I made these for my Christmas cookies and wanted to take them to another level. I made them into sandwich cookies using some black raspberry preserves. That was just amazing and if you can, try it.
I did not want to go shopping but I was craving some good chocolate cookies..... So I tried this recipe and was surprized at how good they were.... I added a little more vanilla because I really like vanillla... and I made them smaller and cooked them for only 8 min...thanks for the great cookies!
