These are good cookies. The dough seemed a bit strange but it may be because of the substitutions we did. I added in about a cup of dried cherries, 1 cup of chocolate chunks, used whole wheat flour instead of white, 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 c white, 1 tsp baking soda and 1tsp baking powder (instead of the 2 tsp baking soda) added 1 tsp vanilla and a handful of pistachios, 1 tsp of cinnamon and rolled them in coconut. I think the missing ingredient of why people are getting flat cookies may be adding 1/2 tsp of salt (the salt needs to react with the baking soda/powder to release air which should help them from being flat. Overall a good dark chocolate cookie recipe.Made another version and followed the recipe almost exactly (except added, pinch of salt, 1/2 baking soda, 1/2 baking powder and 1tsp vanilla). I chilled the dough for about 10 minutes and it was fine. I found the cookies a bit sweet for my liking. Added in dried cranberries, cardamon and cinnamon and it was great :)
