Wonderful cookies!!! I really don't get the big deal about these cookies not spreading out as some of the other recipes. I guess if you like crisp, crunchy type of cookie, this isn't the one for you to try. But if you like a nicely flavored and soft & fluffy type of the chocolate chip cookie, this is for you!!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef event.
Mad these this weekend for a friend. They were wonderful! They didn't flatten out like the other reviews said but I didn't know cookies had to be flat. They were so soft - he described them as "biting into a cloud" and requested more! I weighed the flour at 4 grams per cup (according to King Arthur's website) and it worked perfectly.
I am disappointed in this recipe. As chef Azparzch said, the cookies do not flatten out at all and as such were not very attractive. I think the ratio of flour to butter was too high. I don't think the taste was as good as other chocolate chip cookies because of the use of only dark brown sugar, rather than some granulated sugar with the brown sugar.
These are good cookies that didn't flatten out like mine usually do. They do not have an overly sweet batter and were quick. I made 1/2 batch and cooked for 9 1/2 minutes and they were still soft. Added chopped walnuts with the chocolate chips. Made for My-3-Chefs 2009.
