wow! thanks Northern for this recipe--I was looking for a chocolate-filled cookie, and this was the only recipe I could find. My expectations were low, but it was amazing! I subbed 150g margarine for the shortening, 70% whole wheat flour and squares of dark chocolate. The dough was the perfect consistency, didn't spread out, coated the chocolate despite the corners of the squares. The chocolate was melted and delicious hot out of the oven. This one's going in the cookbook!
