Rick Katz’s Double Chocolate Cookies came along at just the right time…I have been majorly craving chocolate lately. I’ve hardly touched the stuff in the last six months, and that’s just plain unnatural!
I knew exactly what these cookies would be like. I’ve worked in two places where we made cookies very similar to this, method and everything (just in way bigger batches). In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if my two former chefs started with this recipe originally. These are rich– a dark chocolate batter with extra chocolate bits mixed in (preferably a high percentage bittersweet)– and exactly the fix I was looking for. The recipe intro calls them something like “half cookie, half brownie,” and that about sums it up. You have to whip the heck out of the eggs and sugar when you make these, so they get that awesome brownie-like crackle shell, but they’re really soft inside. As soon as they cool from baking, they’re pretty gooey. But give them the better part of a day, or even overnight, and they become chewy. So good.
