This week’s Baking with Dorie recipe for Chocolate Chunkers was chosen by Laurie of cookin’ up north. You can find the recipe for these fabulous cookies on Laurie’s blog (along with some delicious looking pictures), or on pages 70-71 of Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours. Make sure you check out the BWD blogroll to see how the other bakers did with these.
When I saw the picture of these cookies in Dorie’s book, I knew they would be a hit with the husband as he is a certified chocoholic. These are some seriously chocolate cookies! The batter has melted bittersweet and unsweetened chocolate and cocoa powder. Then you mix in semi-sweet and white chocolate chips. TONS of chocolate! To add even more chunkiness to these cookies, Dorie adds chopped peanuts (or pecans) and raisins (which I omitted because the husband does not like raisins in cookies). Once everything was mixed together, you could see very little dough, just the chocolate chips and nuts!
I am happy to report that these cookies did not disappoint. They came out of the oven about an hour ago, and I think the husband has already demolished three. They are slightly crispy on the outside, with a nice chewy, brownie-like texture on the inside. I know they won’t last long around here! You must try these!! Thanks Laurie for picking such a great cookie!
Our next BWD recipe for September 27th is for Banana Cream Pie…cannot wait for that one!
