I was really excited when I saw the February selection for Tuesdays with Dorie because I’ve made 3 out of the 4 recipes. I made them in either the spring or summer of 2008 and have just been waiting to post them. I had a lot of other goodies at the time to post, so I was okay with waiting on these. That does mean that some of my pictures this month will be kind of crappy because you’ll see my photography skills from several months ago, and I have kept improving since then. But anyway, it’s the food and the taste that matters!
This Dorie recipe has captured my interest for a while. It’s been pretty popular in the blogging world, and I kept thinking it would be chosen for Tuesdays with Dorie pretty soon. After going for months without making any of Dorie’s cookies, I decided that I did not want to wait any longer to make these, so I decided to go ahead and make them, write the post, and save it for when it did get chosen. So finally, in February 2009, Jessica of Cookbookhabit chose these cookies!
These are unlike many other chocolate cookies I’ve had. It was more like a shortbread cookie. I am usually all for chewy cookies, but this one was amazing. It was firm but still soft, and it had a wonderful chocolate flavor. The mini chips were a great surprise with each bite. I must say that this is one of my favorite chocolate cookies, and the dough was delicious too! This is definitely a great recipe to make when you’re in the mood for cookies- you won’t regret it!
