very thin and very brown and very crisp and very gooey - the 2 tablespoons of water is the secret, i think -- i cut the sugar in most recipes by 1/3 and it's fine - and healthier --

Loved the crispy edges and gooey middle- the flavor was spectacular. Of course, this made quite a lot, so please note, your standard Kitchen Aid will struggle a bit. I am a bit impatient, so I did not refridgerate long, the cookies ran a bit for me, next time I will use parchment. I used my cookie scooper to make balls in which I froze for later use, and added pecans to some, which were delicious. I kept thinking how wonderful peanut butter would be so you may want to sub one cup of chocolate chips for peanut butter chips. Thanks for posting, it is now my top chocolate chip cookie!!!
Yummy! A definate keeper - the family loved them.
