So now that we’ve all had our chocolate fix, I’d say it’s time for more don’t you? I think chocolate cookies are in order and there’s no mistaking the presence of chocolate in these cookies.
While we all have our favorite holiday cookies, it’s nice to mix in some new ones among old favorites, so I do hope you’ll make these this season, or for any occasion for that matter.
I like to think of them like the little black dress of cookies. Elegant and dependable, they never fail to deliver with very little effort on your part.
It’s a cookie that doesn’t pretend to be anything other than what it is; mainly a vehicle for large quantities of chocolate. Although they boast a distinct advantage over their traditional counterparts in that they are entirely gluten-free and grain-free.
The recipe calls for both cocoa and bittersweet chocolate in the dough for a complex and deep chocolate flavor. Melted bittersweet chocolate gently subdues the dusky darkness of the cocoa powder while chunks of chopped chocolate are studded throughout.
These humble looking double chocolate cookies are subtle and refined to the core; rich with chocolate and a tender crumb that is subtly sweet. Their crackled brownie-like tops and crisp edges conceal a dense fudgy center, rich with pockets of softened chocolate peeking through here and there.
Might I suggest you sandwich two of these together with a small scoop of chocolate ice cream for a special treat, or am the only one who likes to have more chocolate with my chocolate? I thought not.
