The secret to the super-crisp texture here is cutting the dough into very thin rounds; coarse sanding sugar on top adds to their crunch.

    Chocolate and orange combination is my favorite and when I saw this recipe, I thought it would be great. However, I ended up throwing them away. First, there was no orange flavor. Tasted like a bitter chalky, chocolate. You can't sift coarse salt. Trying to fit this into a paper tube was hard. On top of everything else, they didn't even spread out as shown. The cookies stayed the same shape and thickness after cutting them. I was so disappointed. I have no idea what I did wrong. Followed the recipe exactly as written. Any ideas?

    Though slightly hesitant after reading the two extremely bad reviews on this cookies, the idea of making a more grown up taste cookie is simply too hard to resist! Overall: Think Checkerboard Cookies with lighter texture and intense flavor. Verdict: Far from garbage bin material: This is certainly a solid recipe that I wouldn't mind re-making. I simply enjoy the bold, earthy cocoa-espresso flavor. My Tweak: - Used less but regular salt - No orange - Thin slice dough = brittle

    I have a brownie recipe that is similar in flavors and ingredients. Called the TEXAS BROWNIES.

    I had no problems with this dough. Cookies turned out great, especially if you are a chocolate lover.

    These cookies sound better than they taste.

    Delicious. I used half Dutch-process cocoa, and half black cocoa, so mine came out even darker than the ones pictured. The coarse salt results in little surprise bursts of flavor and helps balance out the sweetness, though these cookies are not overly sweet, which is partly why I love them!
