Reviews forQuick & Chewy Chocolate Cookies
"The taste is good and I enjoy the chewy crunch. The only downside is the flat presentation. It helps a little if I keep them small."
"I actually cut the recipe in half and added mint chocolate chips to them! Turned out very yummy"
"I followed the recipe to the "T" and they came out thin as a piece of paper. They tasted okay and chewy ."
"These cookies are great! They spread out thin but keep their circular shape. The best thing about them is they stay soft and chewy, even 2 days later. Still soft. They do have a brownie taste. I will definitely recommend these."
"These cookies are not much to look at, but they taste great! Because the dough is so soft they spread out when baking and become very thin, but I wanted a chewy chocolate cookie, and that's definitely what I got! 2 cups of sugar seemed like a lot to me, so I did 1 cup of white sugar and 3/4 cup of brown, and they still taste great. Next time I make them I think I'll experiment with ways to keep the chewy-ness, but get them to stand up a bit more."
"Are you looking for a cookie recipe that has ingredients you probably have in your cupboard? Are you looking for a tasty and easy to mix cookie recipe that makes plenty of cookies? Well then, you have found it! This cookie recipe is yummy, easy to mix and doesn't require special ingredients. I am making them right now to flesh out my cookie trays for Christmas. I will make this recipe again and not just for the holiday. I do have one suggestion though, drop the cookies by level tablespoon. Rounded tablespoons produce cookies that are larger than I like them to be. Try it both ways and decide for yourself."
"These are great. With a Husband and 5 boys, they don't stay around for long. I always double the batch because they are so good. You could also add chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or chopped pecans to these."
