Reviews for Jumbo Brownie Cookies
Sort By :
"THESE COOKIES ARE AWESOME! I HAVE USED SEVERAL DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHIPS. PEPPERMINT AT THE HOLIDAYS, WHITE CHOCOLATE FOR COLOR CONTRAST AND THE CHOCOLATE CHUNKS AS RECIPE CALLS FOR. I USE A COOKIE SCOOP TO MAKE MINE, THUS SMALLER AND I ADJUST THE COOKING TIME TO SLIGHTLY LESS."
"Water4Chocolate - It looks like these cookies are really big (1/4 cup batter per cookie). You could just use half the amount of batter per cookie (or even less) and then the calories would be half as much (175 cal.) and you would have twice as many cookies."
"Why would you give 3 stars for a question but NOT A REVIEW????"
"@ Water4Chocolate, I do most of my baking with the Splenda Brown Sugar and/or the Stevia Blend. That cuts way down on the sugars. Don't know if that helps you or not. Started baking that way when my dad became pre-diabetic and never quit. Hubby and I liked them better that way. I also use the Butter Flavored Crisco or just Canola oil for the butter and they still come out good. I have not tried this recipe, however, but love brownies so will give it a try with my substitutions above."
"This is not a review but a question. These are undoubtedly fantastic cookies. But at 350 calories each and 19 g fat they are over the top for our particular diet needs. Does any clever baker have a chewy to slightly crunchy dark chocolate cookie recipe with closer to 100 calories and much less sugar and fat, especially saturated fat from dairy? Thank you in advance."
