This cookie tastes just like a blonde brownie. It even has the same dense chewy texture. However, it has the appearance of a chocolate crinkle with the cracked powdered sugar making it attractive enough for a cookie tray. I made 1/2 recipe, and It made 20 cookies using a cookie scoop. I gently shaped them, but left them in a mound shape, and placed on a parchment paper lined sheet. Even though I coated them well with powdered sugar I had about half of it leftover. Mine took 16-17 minutes to bake.
I'm so very very glad that I waited to write my review. In fact, you'll probably think I'm totally nuts when I tell you my thoughts. I made these, waited until the next day to taste them because of what the submitter said about the taste getting stronger the next day. I didn't think they really tasted at all. I stuck them away in a cupboard and promptly forgot them. I found them this morning--eleven days later! And guess what?!? I LOVE them! Yes, they are getting old, but the edges are wonderfully crunchy, and the middle is still just creamy soft. And the taste is very pronounced. Yummy with my coffee this morning! Now I'll put them in my freezer to preserve them for the future coffees! Thanks, Noelle!
I loved these cookies. They came out very nice and soft and almost like a bread texture. They are my new favorite cookies. The only thing that I did not like was that they didnt shape very well, but that may have been something I did wrong. Anyways, we made these for Santa today (Christmas eve) and they were a hit :D
I made this recipe on a whim and was trying to avoid making an ENTIRE batch of cookies in fear I'd consume all of them, including indulging in the dough before baking.
Anyway, these cookies were phenomenal. I reduced the quantity to make 15 cookies which in reality made 7 cookies with my cookie scoop. I believe my scoop holds a 1/4 cup of dough. I didn't have any powdered sugar on hand so I added 1/4 tsp (for the 15 cookie quantity) of ground cinnamon to the dry mixture (flour, baking powder, salt). This amount of cinnamon will need to be upped if you plan to make the full batch.
I tried one cookie hot off the cookie pan and it was amazingly chewy, thick and had just the right amount of sweetness. Love these, cannot wait to have one tomorrow after it's had time to sit and rest.
Wonderful, quick, and easy treat! I did not add salt since I had salted butter on hand. The texture is certainly for folks who like a semi-chewy center. Will definitely use this recipe in the future.
I had fun making this recipe with my kids! It's so fun rolling the dough balls in the confectioner sugar. The cookies are rich and sweet but not too heavy. This is an excellent dessert for anyone looking for a simply, quick and easy cookie recipe!
These are Fantastic!!! Great recipe!!! thanks!! will definitely make again!!!
I really enjoyed these....I think anyone who likes the flavor of brown sugar would too. My batch had a very interesting, unique texture - a crisp, crunchy exterior followed by a soft, dense, chewy interior. I baked them for about 16 minutes.
