I totally agree with "bicktasw" description. The am't of batter the recipe suggested per cookie seemed like it was going to be too small, but it is JUST RIGHT! This will definitely be my "go to" recipe for a chocolate cookie. I didn't use nuts, this time, but I may use macadamia nuts next time.

Very good chocolate cookie! Slightly crunchy on the outside ....... VERY moist and chewy on the inside! The chocolate flavor is much like a brownie. The crunchy outside takes this cookie to the next level .... now you can have your crunchy cookie ..... and chewy cookie at the same time!!

Excellent soft cookie. My FIL has difficulty eating hard or crunchy cookies, so these are perfect for him! Since I don't like nuts in cookies, I added oats and triple chocolate chips (milk, white and dark). Delicious! I will definitely make these again.

This is exactly the type of chocolate cookie I was looking for. It's a good cross between a brownie and a cookie....Too chewy to be considered cake like, but not chewy enough to be a traditional chocolate chip cookie to me. I'll definitely make again when I'm looking for a triple hit of chocolate!

They are similar to a brownie. Sour cream gives this cookie a very good taste. I used all white chips.

I'm not a sweet eater, but I have a family all of whom have an extra long sweet tooth. These were easy to make, had a good soft texture, and although very very chocolate tasting, the first three dozen disappeared among a group of ages of 13 through 76 as they were being baked - the cookies, not the people.

My cookies turned out more the thickness and texture of a regular chocolate chip cookie - not thick and cake-like. Not sure why. I was hoping for cake-like. That said, the cookies are delicious! I baked them for 12 min, let them cool on the cookie sheet a few minutes then moved them to a rack. I also used 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips and 2/3 cup milk chocolate and 1/3 cup chopped walnuts. Why 1/3 cup? Because my 1/2 cup was dirty. There's no science here. I definitely recommend these cookies.

Delicious!!!! I couldn't stop eating the dough, and the finished product is just as wonderful. Very moist and full of flavor. I used white chips and loved it. This is my go to double chocolate chip cookie recipe now.
