This recipe is giving me a complex, because I just can't concur with any of the rave reviews. I found these to be a huge disappointment as stated - they spread out very thin, resulting in a cookie that was burnt around the edges yet still raw in the middle. They kind of cooked through while cooling on the sheet, but they turned into more of a florentine or lace-type cookie, they were so thin. I mean, you can have a cookie that's chewy but still have some body to it. I added more flour to last batch and that produced a fairly decent cookie. If I were to try this again, I would reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup brown and 3/4 cup white and increase the flour to 2 cups...maybe even more. On the bright side, I actually quite enjoyed the spices in this - I used the exact amounts called for and found none of them to be overwhelming at all.
