Reviews for Chewy Chocolate Cookies
"Someone has asked about making cookies plumper. I have discovered that replacing about 1/4 butter with the same amount of shortening preserves the buttery flavor and chewiness, but gives cookies a little more body (less melting in the oven). I adapted an oatmeal cookie recipe this way and am very happy with it."
"Great tasting and versatile cookie. We like our cookies large, so mine made about 3 1/2 doz. To adjust, I added 1/2 C flour. I chilled the dough for about 1 hour. I used a cookie scoop about size of large walnut. Flatten tops of cookies slightly. bake for 15 min. and let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing. I vary the flavor by adding peanut butter chips, or white chocolate chips, or mint chips. All are yummy!"
"These are great!! Just as they are...."
"These cookies are really good and have a big chocolate flavor. I did increase the cooking time to 15 minutes and they still are chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. This recipe made me 3 dozen cookies. This is a keeper for my family."
"Oh my goodness. These cookies are awesome! Chewy inside and crunchy outside. I varied the recipe a bit by using mini nonpareils. Only needed a cup and then pressed a few on top. This recipe is definitely a keeper."
"Absolutely delicious! These are my family's new favorite cookies!!!"
"These were yummy, my first tray came out really thin & falling apart. I added about a tbsp of flour to the remaining dough & the next tray of cookies came out fluffier. I also used half whole wheat flour & half regular since wheat flour makes slightly chewier cookies"
"Wow! If you love chocolate, you'll adore these cookies! I made my first batch too big and they were hard to handle without breaking but still scrumptious anyway."
"Those are delicious cookies."
"No wonder there is no photo. These are about the ugliest cookies ever, dark to the point of looking burned and very thin, but are their looks ever deceiving! What fabulous chocolatey taste, chewy texture."
"this recipe was definitely a hit in our family and now i make them every year for our family reunion"
"Very yummy and chocolatey. These cookies are fall apart soft and my family loves them."
