Best Half-Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

"These cookies are a great, soft, chocolatey small batch perfect for a small family. They have a great chewy and soft texture and a delicious flavor! I got the recipe from a good friend a month ago and have made them four time since then. Easy to prepare and even easier to eat!"

    Taste was delicious. They did not spread out at all Followed recipe exactly. Should have read the reviews and swapped out some flour for the cocoa powder.

    Perfect recipe! Just what I was looking for, as we only had 1 stick of butter on hand. We did use the cocoa powder, stirring it into the flour before incorporating it (we did use one tablespoon less flour than was called for). 3/4 cup semi-sweet choc. chips was just right for our taste, and we didin't use any white choc. chips at all. Also stirred in 1 tbsp. of ground flaxseed and 1/2 cup rolled oats for a warm,oaty, chocolatey bit of yumminess!

    You were right! These are chocolaty, soft, and chewy! I let the first batch cook too long and they were crispy but still good. The second batch came out just right! And I ate them all up! Thanks!
