Your rating: None Average: 4 (156 votes)

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.

"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...

Too Much Sugar

How can these cookies be listed as "healthy"? Just because a cookie is low fat, doesn't mean it is healthy. 2 1/4 cups of sugar is awful for anyone, and the white flour adds to the unhealthy quality of the cookie. This is not a recipe where "good taste meets good health."

Low fat
How are these low-carb?

These cookies are not in any way low-carb, nor diabetic appropriate. I am disappointed in the total lack of attempt to modify this recipe, as well as its low-carb classification. Way too high in sugar for diabetics, and far too high in both processed flours & sugars to be classified as low-carb. Eating Well is usually much better about this!

Easy and delicious

These cookies are so delicious. The best part for me is that the cookie is so soft but also has a little crunch on the top layer. The other best part is that there's hardly any fat and they are low in calories so I didn't feel guilty or full. My kids love them too. I halved the recipe so I couldn't eat too many; very easy to do. I don't have a lot of patience for complicated recipe's, so this recipe's simplicity is an added bonus.

Not too many ingredients. Easy instructions.

I will not be trying these, too much sugar! How can they only be 60 calories each with all that sugar???

Egg whites
Too many steps to an ok cookie

I followed the directions exactly and the cookies didn't flatten out and rather than chewy, they are sort of rubbery. I used a lot of eggs and expensive chocolate and I feel a little cheated.
