- Cookies can be sprinkled with sifted powdered sugar instead of chocolate drizzle.

Tasty and easy! But make sure you actually refrigerate the dough for two hours, or you'll have a mess.

Here is a suggestion, Holly. This is a very fudgy dense cookie. I would mix in about 1 to 2 T. all-purpose flour to the cookie dough. Then I would bake a test cookie first to see if the texture is not so flat. The other possibility as to why the cookies are flat and fell in the middle. is that you would need to bake the cookie a little longer. They might also be underbaked.

Quick question, the cookie is fabulous but mine fell flat after they cooled. Any ideas on what I may have done to do this? I actually followed the recipe to the letter so I am not sure what I may have done. They still taste great but they are really flat. Any ideas are appreciated.

A true chocoholic cookie, perfect! These cookies are so moist. My mom could not stop giving me such rave reviews, she said it is her FAVORITE cookie, which is huge!

THE best chocolate cookies. They are a huge success at family events, and friends love them. Using rubber gloves makes rolling the dough easier, and somewhat less messy. I don't make the drizzle, as they're ideal plain.

Rolling this cookie dough is sooo messy. But sooo worth the trouble! They are soft, chewy and intensely chocolate. The glaze makes them look pretty on a cookie tray, too.

My 94 year old mother said they were the best cookies she had ever tasted and at her age I am sure she has tasted quiet a few although not as much as me because she still watches her figure. My adult son was eating them as fast as I could bake them. It took 2 bakings before I got ahead of him. As for me, I got sick by eating too much batter and did not seem to want many cookies. I made them normal size and baked them 15-17 minutes. I did not put the drizzle on them because they were very rich and also half gone before it was time to make the drizzle. Forming the batter was messy, but well worth it.don't wear anything good while forming batter The rest was easy. This has becme my favorite chocolate cookie!
