Midnight Snack Hit My 4 year old daughter and I whipped up this recipe to have a treat to watch Christmas movies with. She and the rest of the family loved them! Very fun and simple and are pretty much completed instantly. We ate them over the next couple of days with no quality issues (ours were plain with no sugar dusting). Pros: Quick Easy
Silky Texture I made these for a cookie exchange so I made two recipe's worth. They were delicious. I eliminated the espresso and used white flour instead of whole wheat (I know it destroys some of the nutritionals but I thought the wheat taste would be too strong). The raw batter tasted like chocolate mousse and the baked cookies had a silky texture consistent throughout. I found that 75 seconds on low/lights was right for my waffle iron. I did not have a nonstick waffle iron but lightly brushed the plates with canola oil every other time. I have had the leftovers now for almost a week and they are not stale yet...so not sure why recipe says you can only store for one day. Pros: Easy to make ingredients you have on hand quick
Very bland I made these for a school project in which I had to find healthier versions of classic Christmas cookies. I used this recipe as a healthier version of a pixie or fudge crinkle cookie. I surveyed about 50 people... and only 1/5 of them even liked them! Everyone else thought they were terrible. Some of my comments literally told me to never make them again. I didn't use espresso powder because I had to make these last minute and wasn't sure where to find it so that may have been part of the problem however I cannot imagine that it would improve them very much! All-in-all these were definitely not a hit Pros: easy to make Cons: lack flavor
learned y not to use belgium waffle maker I didnt have a regular waffle maker so I tried my belgium waffle maker I know I know the recipe said not to. well I learned my lesson. so I baked in oven at 350 for 10 mins. Wonderful edges are crunchy but center is gooey
Very Well Recieved! I was dubious about this recipe at first - It isn't the most appealing cookie to look at; But I have a fried who recently suffered from a heart attack and I wanted to send him something that was still Christmas'y' but not terribly horrible for his new heart healthy diet. At first I thought that the cookies were a little bland but the flavor sticks with you - expecially if you use the espresso powder - and they are great with a tall glass of milk. My dad and co-workers ADORE them! And next time (but not for my heart healthy friend; ) I am going to try adding some chocolate chips...Great recipe overall! Pros: Quick Easy and Delicious Cons: None really.
boot tracks These are pretty good and definitely easy but they seemed to lack a rich chocolaty flavor. I used the peppermint drizzle (without the green food coloring) and it definitely added flavor and pizazz! I will be making them again but I'll try it with more cocoa.
I put whole wheat pastry flour Substitute in google and this is what I found. Substitute for whole wheat pastry flour Per 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour substitute 1/2 cup cake flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour OR substitute 1 cup whole wheat flour (product will be more dense)
I made these for a group of young girls and they were a hit. I substituted the canola oil with olive oil and served them plain (without the confectioners' sugar). They are brownie-like in texture and taste.
i love this recipe. i can hardly believe it's healthy for you. they worked out deliciously!! i didn't have the pastry flour so i just used plain white flour and decreased the cocoa by 1/2. i had many positive comments after making them for my sons monster truck party and calling then tire treads. my father in law took some home and popped them in the toaster the next day and said they were superb!! thanks for a great recipe!!!
