An awesome recipe AS IS!! After reading the reviews, I starting tweaking the recipe with disasterous results. Because I was making this for a back-to-school special for the local Kindergarten teacher, I had to make them again. This time I followed the directions as written and they came out perfect. Things I did do were: used the 3 (large)eggs, reduced the vanilla to 1 tsp, and really packed the flour into the measuring cup - usually I spoon the flour but didn't in this case. 10 Tbsp of cocoa is just a hair over 2/3 c so I put in the 2/3 c of cocoa. The dough came out perfect - even tho we didn't mix in all of the flour and cocoa powder in the end - this is because my son turned the mixer on high just after I added some of the flour mixture and blew brown powder all over the kitchen - so I may have been lacking 1/4 c of that mixture, I am not sure! I did sift 1/3 c cocoa powder and 1/3 c powdered sugar together and used that to flour my rolling surface. 10 minutes baked on parchment paper made absolutely beautiful and perfect cookies. A definite keeper of a recipe with the results tasting like Nabisco's Famous Chocolate Wafers!
