"My friends love it when I bring these to parties. The spice makes them tastier and a bit more interesting than your average chocolate chip cookie."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

these are ok, but not great
These are, by far, the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. This is my "go-to" recipe whenever I need to bake cookies for my family, my friends, or myself! A few changes I make: I refrigerate or freeze the cookie dough so that it is very cold. Then I roll each piece of cookie dough in powdered sugar, place the cookie on the cookie sheet, and press down with a glass dipped in powdered sugar. I bake the cookies for a few less minutes than the recipe calls for. This way, the cookies come out a little crispy on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside, and stay that way even after they cool.
I doctored these up a bit. First, I left out the chocolate chips so that I'd be left with a spice cookie. Then, I added more spice-- 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1/4 t. cloves, and 1/4 t. ginger. I also mixed the butter-sugar-egg mixture on high until it was really light and frothy before I added the dry mixture. The cookies turned out flat yet chewy--very good texture and taste. I got 30 cookies out of this and baked them for 10 minutes.
Very good chocolate chip cookies. Only spicy because I added 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, though - otherwise they'd be fairly non-spicy but good chocolate chip cookies. Chewy, crunchy, good cookies and with my addition, truly zippy! Other than that, followed recipe to letter.
These were alright cookies. I omitted almond extract and cloves because I didn't have them, and increased the nutmeg and cinnamon by half. I also added 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper as suggested by another reviewer. I didn't find them flat at all, and 10 minutes was perfect baking time. Next time I would increase all the spices by another half, and keep the cayenne.
These were very good. I upped the spices to 1/2 tsp. each and added about 1/4 tsp of ginger. It made about 50 cookies.
Yummy and interesting! I used dark chocolate chips, which complemented the spices really well. I wished they were a little more spicy, but on the whole delicious!
