TWD: Chocolate Chunkers
OMG! That was my first reaction after biting into this cookie. And my second, and third, and....
This week, Claudia from Fool for Food chose Chocolate Chunkers (p. 70 in Baking: From my Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan).
These cookies are decadent! Chunky, chocolatey, chewy, melt in your mouth good. They definitely fulfill any chocolate fix you might need. I was a little concerned about adding raisins to such a chocolatey cookie. I used pecans and golden raisins in mine. After seeing how chunky the batter was, I was more concerned that the cookies weren't going to hold together. No need to worry. That Dorie knows what she's doing. Probably the best cookie I've ever made.
Now I must leave the house and run some errands before that plate of cookies looks like this:
Being alone in the house with these as company is a dangerous situation!
