Double Chocolate Cookies are really brownies masquerading as cookies. They’re super chocolatey, and I love chocolate and brownies, but I was a little disappointed that they didn’t surprise me with something new. They contain a full pound of chocolate and only a half cup of flour. And although they have a lot of sugar, they’re not very sweet. They are definitely a chocolate lover’s cookie…there is nothing subtle about them.
The recipe calls for refrigerating the dough before baking the cookies. That was great, since I like baking just as many cookies at a time as we’re likely to eat in one or two days.
The recipe is on pages 329-330 of Baking With Julia. To read about other bakers’ versions of Double Chocolate Cookies, you can find links to their blog posts at Tuesdays With Dorie.
