Brown Eyed Baker. I've tried a couple of her delightful treats now, including her Chocolate Chip and Pretzel Cookie Bars and they are absolutely fabulous.
These cookies truly are better than brownies, with their gooey, chocolatey centers and brownie like glossy tops. If you need a chocolate fix, these will do more than fix you. It's like plastic surgery for your tongue. Yum!
Better-than-Brownies Chocolate Cookies
(From Michelle at the website Brown Eyed Baker. Makes 24 large cookies)
2 2/3 cups (about 16 ounces) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
4. In a small bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder.
5. Add the melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine well. Slowly add the dry ingredients, folding them into the batter. Once all of the flour is incorporated, stir in the chocolate chips.
6. Scoop 1½ tablespoons of dough (a medium cookie scoop’s worth) onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are firm on the outside. Like brownies, do not overbake! Leave to cool completely on the baking sheets.
