I really messed up and only used one stick of butter + the four tablespoons. I couldn't imagine why the dough was so stiff at the end! It wasn't until I was completely done baking cookies that I realized I had left out half of the butter. How were the cookies you ask? They were delicious!! They were like miniature brownies, not dry or hard. Just deep chocolate goodness! They were a bit small and didn't spread, probably due to not using all of the butter. If these were that good with a major error, I can only imagine how good they will be with full power butter! Aunt Dawn, thanks for a great recipe!! It's a keeper!!!
These were good. Still doesn't beat a chocolate chip cookie. I like the fact that all the ingredients are ingredients that are usually on hand.
These are great! They do taste like brownies! Crispy around the edges and soft and chewy in the middle. Baked them for 10 minutes exactly. Next time I'm going to add white chocolate chips. Tasted best the first couple days.
I thought these were good. I agree with the reviewer who said they still don't beat a chocolate chip cookie! I made this recipe because I had all of the ingredients on hand. I was a little surprised at how sticky and hard to work with the dough was. My kids loved these cookies and kept saying they tasted like brownies. I thought they needed chocolate chips for some added flavor and texture.
I used 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup white sugar. I added an additional 1/4 cup flour to prevent them from flattening out. Chewy chocolate delishousness!
I add almond slivers to mine! Terrific!!!
I absolutely love this recipe and its a first time for me.....im always trying to find something different and I want to thank you for sharing this...my kids will truely enjoy these :)
This is one of my favorite cookies! Simple but good. They need to put this recipe back on the cocoa box, but I'm glad to have it here!
Same exact recipe my mom had in her recipe box that she cut off the box of Hershey Cocoa 40+ years ago. The only chocolate cookies we've made year after year. Just yummy!
These were fabulous! A huge hit. I added chocolate and peanut butter chips with pecans and they were off the chain good!
