I will admit to doctoring this recipe a bit, but the results were excellent. First, instead of two cups of white sugar, I used 1 cup white sugar and 2/3 cups brown sugar. I have some black cocoa that is to die for, but super strong on its own. I used 1/4 cup of that and 1/2 cup of regular cocoa. I also used 1/2 cup vegetable shortening in place of half of the butter. Then, just as an experiment, I used only 1/4 cup butter but also added 1/2 of a ripe avocado leftover from my lunch. With all these changes, the cookies didn't spread much as they baked so after the first batch I flattened the dough before baking. So far no one in my family has any clue these cookies have some avocado in them. You can't taste it at all. The cookies are crisp on the outside and gooey in the middle, super chocolatey and just all around yummy. Next time I'll use a whole avocado and no butter, muahahahaha!
