Tuesdays with Dorie: Dorie’s Best Espresso Chocolate Chip CookiesFebruary 16, 2010 at 1:06 am | Posted in cookies & bars, groups, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 29 Comments
Frankly, I’m shocked that TWD has been at it for more than two years, and we are only now getting around to the recipe for Dorie’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies (and that’s thanks to Kait of Kait’s Plate). I really thought that this would be one of the first to cross off the list… but finally here these cookies are, and let me tell you they are worth the wait!
It’s hard to argue with Dorie’s suggestion that chopped bar chocolate makes tastier cookies than chips, so I bought a couple of my favorite Theo 70% bars, and put my knife to work. I left out the nuts and added in espresso powder, as well as a teeny sprinkle of pink salt midway through baking. Some folks had issues with spreading cookies, but mine turned out to be not too flat (although my dough had been in the freezer for a couple days before I baked it). A little chew in the center and lots of gooey chocolate made these a gold medal winner in my books!
