unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
BF was not a fan of these but my co-workers loved them. I replaced the shortening with butter and left out the nuts.
I didn't have any buttermilk so I mixed milk and lemon juice before I started so it'd have time to curdle. Other than that I followed the recipe and it turned out wonderfully. I like the molasses and chocolate together. But next time I'll leave out the chocolate chips. They were a bit too rich for me with them.
These are good, but I would have preferred them to be more dense - they turned out fluffy and cake-like. I did use butter instead of shortening, so that may have impacted the fluffy factor. When I tasted the batter, I was concerned that the molasses flavor would be too strong, but after baking they were not too molassesy for me. They were quick to prepare - I had them in the oven within 20 minutes, and they really did take just 12 minutes to bake.
These were good, but the walnuts make it a little bitter, and I am a nut lover. Next time I will leave them out.
Very easy and delicious! A surprisingly great combination of flavors. (Great without the walnuts, too!)
Very good cookies, rich and brownie-like. The molasses flavor really comes through. I used half of the chocolate chips, and it turned out great.
