I found the texture to be very nice but the taste was really lacking. I added about three tablespoons of coco powder as well as a chocolate icing and still found them very bland. I am known for the cookies I bring to our office meetings and these were not a hit. It was the first time I had cookies left to bring home.


These were very good. I did modify the recipe a tiny bit...used self-rising flour, added one cup cup of chocolate chips to the cookie dough and I decreased the cooking time to 9 minutes. Undercooking gives you a soft chewy texture which is what my family likes. This would be a good recipe to play around with. Adding coconut, nuts, vanilla chips or peanut butter chips, etc. would produce interesting results. Thanks Nevena for your recipe.

These were just so-so. I thought the dough was terribly bland so after I baked about half the dough and tasted a cookie, I ended up adding some cocoa powder to the rest of the batch (would have equaled about 3Tbsp for the whole batch) and that gave a lot more flavor. Still not great though. The texture was also a little bit on the dry side. I don't think I'll chance it again.
