These cookies really satisfy the chocoholic's cravings, believe me! Have a good strong cup of coffee available. They are a crispy fix for the chocolate lover. Stir in the vanilla right before folding in the dry ingredients.


Oh. My. Goodness! These are some of the best cookies I have ever made. The process is different than I have ever used for cookies, almost reminded me of making chiffon cake, but it yields perfectly light, moist, decadent treats. They do not spread very much, so what you put on the baking sheet is pretty much what comes off. 9 minutes was perfect in my oven and I got exactly 36 cookies. I can not believe no one has made these since 2004!


One of the best cookie recipes I have ever tasted but the recipe was missing some of the instructions. It did not tell you to add the remaining 4 oz of chocolate to the cookie dough or to add the vanilla to the egg & sugar mixture. You must also chill the dough for about 30 min. or until workable.
