    Very Delicious

    Betty Platner from Medina, Ohio

    I have been making these for years. However, the first year I made them was almost the last! The dough did become very gooey & so difficult to work with! I have found a way that is not so messy. Scoop out a spoonfull of dough, drop into bowl of powdered sugar and roll around in the sugar. Now take the dough & roll ino ball. It rolls so much easier & without all the gooey mess!!!

    Very Chocolatey

    kym rajewski from peachland, BC

    These are really good, but I had a heck of a time making balls with the chocolate dough to roll in the icing sugar(messy).Was this not right? Maybe there is a better technique. They're pretty good tasting cookies though!

    Review for Slimmer Chocolate Crinkle-Top Cookies

    Jenny Terry from Cincinnati, OH

    My family LOVES these cookies. However, because I misread the recipe the first time I used it, I use 10 tablespoons of butter rather than 6. Of course this adds a lot of fat, but we think they taste better. Also, I roll the cookies in granulated rather than powdered sugar. This makes for a very sweet, but oh-so-yummy cookie.
