semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups
light corn syrup
Very good!!!Delicious, they are for sure! I would suggest that the sugar to roll them in MUST be poweder white so after the baking the carkles will be more obvious! They are perfect with a cup of coffe!
These cookies came out too hard and tasting like pure sugar, way too sweet - we couldn't even taste the chocolate at all. It was like putting a spoonful of sugar in your mouth. I read another review which mentioned confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar) - I took the recipe above to mean granulated sugar, maybe that was the mistake?
The dough was a little too thick but the powered sugar made up for it
These cookies reminded me of a chocolate cinnamon cookie that I made in baking school. The Dutch-processed cocoa is a must! If they are too hard, then you cooked them too long.
When I made these the "dough" was like cake batter. I added a lot more flour and it still was not the consistantcy of dough. What did I do wrong? The cookies that resulted tasted good but I had to drop them, instead of roll them.
Great recipe! Thanks for sharing it. Followed the recipe to a tee. Great for making sandwich cookies or chocolate crust for cheesecake...
Spectacular! Roll in granulated sugar, then 10X sugar for best appearance. Only makes about 15 cookies-double or triple batch.
The batter was almost like a mousse, and it didn't have a deep chocolate taste, so instead of adding flour, I added about a quarter cup of unsweetened cocoa powder and chilled the batter till it firmed up just a little. If you're going to roll it in confectioner's sugar, put a thick layer to get that bright white spotted look, otherwise it just cooks into the cookie. Once I tasted the cooked cookie, I remember a packaged cookie that's very similar in taste, but had that granulated sugar with the slightly bigger chrystals on it. That's the route I'm going next time for these super tasty cookies!
