3x Chocolate Cookies

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Sudie

These are so wonderful, and worth every bit of the extra effort. This recipe is from an old Gourmet magazine, I think - my copy is so old and yellowed from use, I can barely read it any more. These are almost like candy, but more sophisticated!

I've made a lot of chocolate cookies over the past few years and this one is still the best. It's extremely chocolatey -- a cross between cookie and fudge. Tastes great with variations too. I sometimes use orange extract instead of vanilla or vary the chips. Hershey's rasberry chips are excellent in these cookies.
