4 (1 ounce) squares
These were absolutely fantastic. I often substitute butter for shortening, but I didn't for this recipe, and I am very glad.
I found them best after they had fully cooled. After about a day, the outside was crunchy and the inside was like a chewy brownie. The marbling of powdered sugar as the cookie expanded got lots of good reviews from my cookie eaters.
These are also fun to make with kids, as rolling the dough balls leaves a chocolate film on the hands -- slightly messy, but enjoyable!
This one is a keeper, but... follow the recipe! (you *must* chill the dough!)
WAY TOO DRY, texture was like sawdust, and not much flavor. Husband was not pleased. I was ashamed of these cookies and I consider myself a reasonably good baker. Will never make again!
This recipe is pretty tweakable. I used cocoa instead of chocolate and oil instead of shortening, and it was still great. Im glad I ran across this. Definitely worth it.
I have been making these cookies since I was a child! We call them Chocolate Crinkles. Couldn't find my recipe (until after I found this one) and it's almost exactly the same. We substitute 1/2 C cocoa plus 4 Tblspn shortening for the chocolate squares, and we don't add the baking powder. I tried that in there, and made no difference to the cookies. Baking on Parchment is a MUST - so much easier! OMG try Dark Cocoa instead and WOW yummy dark chocolate cookies!
WONDERFUL! Made these for a party and they were the first to go (and there were lots of other cookies there!) I followed exact but added a bit more flour because some people mentioned they spread, mine did not at all! The key to this recipe is to make sure your dough is COLD when rolling (chill at least 3 hours) and do not OVERCOOK. I only baked mine for 12 mins (and my cookies were big - I only got 3 doz out of this recipe) then allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5-10 mins then remove to cooling rack until completely set. They may not look completely done when you take them out but if you overbake these they will be so dry and awful. And my kids had a ball rolling in the powdered sugar...so this is a keeper!
I've been making a similar cookie for years, which I got off of a box of margarine. The only difference is that I use melted margarine instead of shortening and I omit the nuts. They are easy and fun to make and deliciously chewy!
Delicious cookie and very attractive.
I used butter instead of shortening as I avoid transfat.
They spread quite a bit when you use butter and you MUST use either a silpat mat or parchment paper or you lose 10% of the cookie when you take it off the baking tray.
These cookies were awesome. They were not dry. I will make these again and again
