Martha, Martha, Martha; an addendum

You know a new cookbook is a good one when you find the excuse to bake twice in one week, just so you can try another recipe.

(As labelled in the book) Milk Chocolate cookies from Martha Stewart's Cookies. Thin and crisp at the edges but still tender at the middle, these cookies have just enough deep chocolate flavour to feel a treat but not overly-indulgent; a dangerous trait, to be sure. In my opinion the cookies I took out after about 11-12 minutes, rather than the recipe's instructed 15, were the perfect balance of chewy and crunch - but this is a matter of personal taste.

I adore these cookies. So much so that they are dangerous in my presence! I only allow myself to make these when I have company. It's the only time I am able to show a little restraint. These cookies are to die for!

You are right, Martha has definitely done it again! I have her book too and the recipes look great! Glad that you have made two winners already!

These cookies are excellent. They taste just as they were described. I did bake them for 11 minutes and it's the perfect time. They are being packed away for a fishing trip to Ocracoke, NC and I will eat their chocolate goodness while swishing my toes in the sand. I love the website.

~madeline~ I am glad to hear that I'm not the only fan of these!

my sweet and saucy, I have to say that I think that this book will be one of those that you check for inspiration quite often; it is a great resource for things like bake sales and gifts.

patricia scarpin, thanks for saying!

onehaven, I cannot recommend them enough they are so simple to make and yet so rewarding. I will admit though, I might make them with some semisweet or bittersweet chocolate in the future, as that is my personal preference.

kelly-jane and sheltie girl, thanks for the compliments.

susan updike, I do hope you have a fabulous time on your fishing trip. Even if your line doesn't get any nibbles, you can at least nibble on these. Thanks for the kind words.
