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. Cons: I wasted a lot of eggs
Almost Perfect 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). Pros: Great chocolate fix, low calories, easy Cons: A little too sweet
Bland, not worth the calories 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! Pros: Better than celery sticks or carrots Cons: Not as good as the real thing
A Wonderful Chocolatey Treat! 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!
Definitely use parchment paper, they will stick to wax. I guess I didn't see that the fuss was about - I found them grainy, sticky and chewy.
