This recipe started with this all recipes recipe that Chastity shared with me:

cookie recipe

With some modifications. Basically, I did the following:

  • water and baking soda with sifting baking powder in with the flour
  • brown sugar with honey (basically a tbsp of whipped honey)
  • I refrigerated the dough so its cold when it goes in the oven
  • No nuts
  • chopped up semi-sweet baking chocolate bars instead of a bag of chips

I think overall they turned out well but I think they are slightly too cakey for my tastes and i would use half a cup less flour to make them more cookie like.

Update: I reduced the flour by 1/6 and the cookies came out much better. (instead of 3 cups I used 2.5 cups)
