Double Chocolate Cookies

Ok, so I slacked on the Pumpernickel loaves from two weeks ago, but I could not pass up Double Chocolate cookies even it is nearing the crazy prep time of Thanksgiving.   I have been baking endlessly it feels like, just not on the Tuesdays with Dorie schedule as of late.   My freezer is full of pizza dough balls, galette rounds, pie crust rounds... all awaiting their Thanksgiving debut.

But onto Double Chocolate cookies.  These are pretty incredible cookies, definitely brownie-like in their crumb and filled with melty chunks of chocolate.  And not too much more difficult or time-intensive than a regular cookie recipe, especially with the use of a mixer to whip up the eggs and sugar.  The recipe calls for quite a bit of chocolate lending a richness to these, and the hint of coffee with instant espresso powder adds nice depth.

This may make it into my keeper book of recipes...  and that is hard to do.

  1. Rhiannon herself looks very artistic! Love the smock. Do make sure to save it for a keepsake. :) These cookies are well worth making again. I'm thinking they have earned a spot in the Christmas tin this year.

  2. We do not celebrate Thanksgiving in Switzerland and I love what's in your freezer: may I come over? ;-)
    These cookies were a huge hit in our house (and for my friends)... a winner!

  3. These are definitely worth making again! You have been a busy bee! That is a full freezer! Good for you. Hopefully there will be some leftover for Christmas too!

  4. I don't even want to think about Thanksgiving baking - I am so behind! I am impressed with your preparation.
    These cookies may make the keeper list around here too! They were pretty well received.
