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!
