Michelle Hansard

Yummy soft chocolate cookies; with a hint of cloves and cinnamon they're absolutely wonderful. You can make sour milk by combining 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar and allow to set 10 minutes.

I made these exactly as the recipe said and the batter was very thin. I added another cup of flour and refrigerated for about four hours. They turned out very nice and have a good flavor. I did get more than three dozen. I will be making these again.

The cookies were soft, but lacked any real flavor. I will not make these again or recommend them to anyone.

As I baked these they burnt so I reduced the oven to 350 and baked 10 min. They came out nice but cake like and puffy.
