Saves the day chocolate chip cookies

    20 min

    No dark brown soft sugar and chocolate chips in the cupboard? This chocolate chip cookie recipe has been adapted from the traditional, which always calls for dark brown soft sugar. A touch of honey does the trick! You can also use any sort of chopped chocolate - from your favourite chocolate bar, or even chocolate eggs leftover from Easter!

    I am so disappointed. I was really looking forward to baking these cookies, but when I started preparing the dough I realized that I had just run out of flour while making my famous coconut-free coconut cake! So I salvaged the ingredients and made a batch of flourless Cow Pie cookies, the cowpie-free version, of course.(  -  28 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I wanted to make chocolate chip cookies for my 8 year old daughter's birthday party at school, and had all the ingredients... except the brown sugar!! It was too late to go to the store, the kids were already sleeping, so I came online hoping to get lucky... and boy did I!! I must admit.. they are not the best cookies... BUT... they were definitely good!! My daughter now has cookies to bring in to her friends tomorrow. THANK YOU!! :-)  -  20 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These cookies turned out WONDERFUL!! Honey is a nice touch. I've been looking for a great recipe for years making homemade cookies without chocolate chips, I would always have the problem with them poofing up too high and getting cakey. These turned out great. They settled about 1/4 inch thick and browned nicely around the edges. I only kept them in the oven for 6 1/2 mintues and let them finish baking on the sheet outside the over for 3 more minutes before I removed them to a cooling rack. The kids gobbled them all up immediately!  -  18 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
