Chocolate Cookie Recipe - Feb 21, 2009

Due to popular demand:

The recipe for the Chocolate cookies! (Shhh, don't tell!)

----------------------------------------------

4oz bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
4 Tbsp butter (unsalted)
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 cup flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 egg

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda & salt in a bowl.

Place another bowl over a pot of simmering water, and heat the butter, sugar and chocolate until they’re mostly melted, then take the chocolate mixture off the heat and stir until it's all melted. Add the egg, and beat til just combined. Stir in the flour mixture gradually. (The dough will form a ball)

Divide the dough in half, and roll out each half on sheets of parchment paper to about 1/4 inch thick. Place on a baking sheet, and freeze for about 20 minutes, until the dough is firm.

Heat the oven to 350degrees.

Take the dough off the baking sheet, use a cookie cutter to cut out the cookies, and place them at least a ½ inch apart. Bake for 5-8 minutes for 2" cookies, 4-5 minutes for 1" cookies.

Let the cookies sit on the sheet for a few minutes to firm up before transferring to cool on a cooling rack.
