Whoa, these are good! Worth the wait until my new Kitchen Aid arrived (how did I live without it?) The texture is fabulous, and the flavor combination is great! I did make some modifications, based on what I had in the house - no milk chocolate, so I used two kinds of dark chocolate instead. While I love that, I would include the milk chocolate next time. I think that must add more depth and variety to the chocolate taste (I know you did it for a reason!) I doubled the vanilla instead of coconut extract, and used unsweetened coconut with a little stevia added. And I even messed up and forgot to put the enplumpened coconut in until after the dry ingredients! No harm done, it seems. Another winner, Greg! You keep outdoing yourself. I will be proud to share these gems!
Hi Greg, thanks for your answers! I was away over Christmas and didn't find your posts until now. :-) My wonderfully generous sister got me a Kitchen Aid for Christmas. I've never even had a stand mixer at all, and this is the professional model! It's as big as my kitchen! She had to ship it, and I've been waiting for its arrival to try these as its maiden voyage (although I suppose your XXX Cherry Chocolate cookies might have been more appropriate ;-)) The first sheet is cooling right now - I can hardly wait to try them! The dough certainly is delicious on its own. Oh, and that Kitchen Aid - who knew creaming and mixing could be so easy??? More to come...
