Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

"Who doesn't like chocolate chip cookies?" inquires field editor Diane Hixon, who credits cocoa in the batter for the double dose of chocolate in her treats. These disappear fast from the cookie jar in her Niceville, Florida home!

    After reading the reviews I decided to use a little less butter in the batter. But I still had a problem with the cookies being to thin when spread out on the cookie sheet. I think they had a great flavor and I cooked them for 12 minutes so they did not burn. But I do believe the batter was to dense.

    This recipe was a failure. The dough was too dense and the cookies burned before cooking. Even with the cocoa the chocolate flavour was lacking. Will not use again.

    I must say also, I think there may be a misprint possibly? I think the recipe needs more flour or less butter. Perhaps this can be researched? As I stated the dough was delicious, but baking off for me was a disaster.

    I was very disappointed in this cookie. I followed the recipe to the point. I scooped onto my sheets with a small ice cream scoop. They spread out FLAT! I could not get them off of the parchment paper. I had to throw all of them away and didn't bother with the remaining dough. The dough flavor was fantastic, but baking them off was a disaster for me. Sorry for the negative response, but it didn't work for me at all and I am an avid baker.
