The cookies were absolutely delicious and lived up to my excitement for fudge crinkles, crackles, chewies, by any name my favorite cookie! I had to tweak the proportions as well, and the cookies took no more than 6 minutes. Due to my limited tins and pans, I found out that this combination of ingredients - in any preferred measurements - is an indulgence as well as an invincible go-to for any event. It can make an amazing pie crust on the bottom or, if you line the pie tin with wax paper and grease+powdered sugar the paper, you can flip it onto the top of a pie or cheesecake! or for cookie cake (if you add a bit of baking soda and almost double the chocolate chips, it's SO crackly outside and fudgy inside)! I can't imagine this recipe with anything less than Ghirardelli 60% dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips- it's worth the extra dollar over Hershey. I am so excited to add this to my catering platters!


Good, needed more flour. I used 1 3/4 cups instead of 3/4 cups. Lots of chocolate!
