i made these cookies again this past weekend, and they turned out even better than before! i used slightly less flour than it calls for (because i ran out) and a bit more chocolate on top (but not too much, like the first time). i also only baked them for about 10-11 minutes, so they weren't too hard after they cooled. holy crap, they were delicious! try the recipe, it's pretty easy and you will love them!
