Cook's Notes

To roll out the dough without using flour (which would mar its color), cover your work surface with parchment paper. Once the dough is frozen, you can peel off the paper and cut the cookies directly on the work surface.

    I made these cookies as a take home for a wedding shower- I used miniature dove and heart cookie cutters to make mini cookies- they turned out great and they looked really cute. The freezing of the dough is a must for this recipe. Also if you are using a stand mixer, this dough is very tough and can be hard on the mixer, so adjust your speed accordingly. I also like to make miniature's of this cookie using various animal shaped cutters and pack them as a lunch snack!

    the dough does get quite sticky..but once i put it in the freezer it was perfect to roll and cut out the cookies....i placed it between parchment paper and rolled it..was easier.

    (contin.) I also didn't use any flour or cocoa to roll out the dough. Probably because I left out the 4 TBSP butter. My cooking cutter was smaller, and I baked for 5 mins. They turned out soft, moist, and super chocolaty!

    These are so delicious! I didn't have solid chocolate, so I used the substitute on the back of the cocoa box for semi-sweet chocolate. I also can't remember if I added the extra 4 TBS of butter....oh well, they are so rich and delicious and were much easier than I expected. I didn't use parchment because I don't use disposable products for cooking. I rolled the dough right on the sheet pan, chilled in the fridge (wouldn't fit in the freezer)

    I only got 25 cookies w/ a cookie cutter measuring 2-1/2" high by 3" across. Any smaller and they would have qualified for 100 calories snacks. Baked 'em for 8 minutes and they turned out A-W-E-S-O-M-E !

    Ladies, FREEZE not REFRIGERATE......is it so hard to follow plain and simple instructions. I see too often in various cookie recipes comments that some do not follow basic directions to begin with and then complain about the results or ingredients amounts. Many aeem to be experienced bakers/ cooks and not in the kitchen for the first time. Common sense is a basic rule. mykele

    If you don't have room in your freezer then don't make these cookies. It's really about making something yummy with your family. Someone commented that she said to cut the cookies out 1/2" apart but she said to place them 1/2" apart on the cookie sheet to bake. Lighten up and enjoy! If the recipes here freak you out then don't look.

    Everyone should relax if they wont fit in your freezer than dont make them. Also, someone commented that she said to cut them out 1/2" apart but she tells you to place them 1/2" apart on the cookie sheet to bake them. We should have fun and bake with your family. If the recipes on this page freak you out then dont look at it or make them. These cookies are amazing!
