These are almost the perfect chocolate "diet" cookie. These are easy to make and the only error that could occur in the making of these would be if you do not follow the recipe exactly. I used a silpat, but would still spray it lightly with a canola oil mister, as I found them to still stick. I did find them a little sweet so if you are looking for sweet this cookie is for you. My batch also made 70 with a small scoop (tablespoon size).
Chewy Chocolate Cookies
From EatingWell: February/March 2005
We can't resist big, soft, fudgy cookies, like those found in glass jars on bake-shop counters. These freeze exceptionally well-layer them in a freezer-safe container between sheets of wax paper; thaw 15 minutes at room temperature before serving.
17 Reviews for Chewy Chocolate Cookies
If I were on a strict diet and hadn't had sugar or chocolate in weeks, these might cut it. I followed the recipe exactly (even bought a $6 bag of whole wheat pastry flour that I'll probably never use again) and I simply wasn't impressed. The chocolate flavor is there, but not rich. I didn't think they were sweet enough, and I thought they were too much work for the outcome. Also, not worth the 68 calories for 1 cookie. On the flip side, my husband just said he'd give them a 7 out of 10, and said they're not bad. To each his own, I suppose!
The only problem I had in baking these (that I just made tonight!) was that if you spoon it directly after mixing the batter spreads, and once it's baked the cookies turn out huge with flat crispy ends. However, if you let the batter firm a bit, it is much more batter and dough like to be able to spoon out the desired amount for your cookies.
Taste wise, they are delicious!
Pretty good. But I had some problems with mine and only got two good batches out of four. the first one was because i baked in on a baking stone. after realizing my mistake a tried it on parchment and they came out very nice. the next batch came out totally burnt! maybe it was something i did when i was mixing ingredients.. but next time i sure hope they turn out better!
Yum!! I added 2/3 cup raw coconut and they came out great. Next time I'll experiment with less sugar because although they taste great I'm sensitive to sugar and can feel it immediately in my head like a slight headache. I also didn't have parchment paper and sprayed a non-stick cookie sheet. They came off fine and still expanded nicely. I did try one batch without spraying the cookie sheet and they did stick. Also love the fact that they are dairy/cholesterol free. Thank you Eating Well!
