Reviews for Mocha Crackle Cookies
"This is a great recipe! Have had these cookies at holiday parties and was looking to make my own so tried this recipe. Here's a hint : Hubby bought me a pro-type baking sheet and I used this to bake these. In the process I thought I would speed things up by using my department store cookie sheet too. I noticed a big difference in the way they came out. I never thought it made a difference - but it does. For those that had trouble with dryness - invest in a good cookie sheet. These were wonderful - thanks for the recipe!"
"These are fantastic! I reduce the cook time to 10 minutes so they are moist and delicious. My friends call them my yummy brownie cookies."
"This recipe was good overall, only one complaint.. I mean it's good, but it didnt scream DELICIOUS! But making again :)"
"everyone always request these. they taste like little brownie bites. so delicous!"
"This quickly became our favorite cookie. The texture was a little different than expected but we loved it! Will definitely make these again. And again."
"Plan to make one batch this week ~~ going to try subbing cocoa powder rather than chopped chocolate. Figured there's enough sugars between white and brown, so as not to make them bitter. One batch first to see, then if okay, will make more."
"I love the flavor of these cookies, but they seem to be dry, I have tried reducing the cooking time, are these suppose to be dry. Any suggestions as to how to make them a moister cookie"
"I thought these were delicious and so easy to make.. Pretty too"
"I made these cookies and even though they were very soft and chocolaty, I didn't taste the coffee flavor at all which was a big disappointment. I even added more coffee granules than called for. If anyone knows how to make them taste more coffee flavored I would love to hear advice!"
"I find this recipe time consuming, but it's worth it. One of my all time favorite recipes."
