SOFTEN your butter, don't melt it, and your cookies will be perfect. I used all butter, no margarine like some reviewers said. Melted butter does not make good cookies. Even half melted will mess up your dough. This is why some reviewers said it works better if it's put in the fridge... they melted it too much. If you don't take your butter out in time to soften just put a stick in the microwave for 2-3 seconds per side and it's perfect. I used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar. Be sure to press the brown sugar FIRMLY when measuring. Dough was very thick and I used a small scoop and then pushed down slightly so it wasn't just a ball. They don't expand much nor do they flatten like a pancake. Once again, that's a too soft/melted butter issue. WONDERFUL COOKIES. I used Ghiradelli (sp) cocoa powder. You want to make sure to use a good quality cocoa powder; it really makes a difference. Remember, take your BUTTER out of the fridge ahead of time and your baking will be perfect. Thanks for the wonderful recipe :-)
