Double Chocolate Cookies

We loved these cookies: complex, chocolaty and chewy.  My favorite cookies are soft and slightly chewy, so these cookies fit the requirement.  The deep chocolate taste, with chocolate chunks offers great depth of flavor and good texture.  I didn’t have instant coffee, so I used super fine ground coffee and that seemed to work well.

Overall these turned out great.  I like my cookies a bit thicker and chewier, but considering how thin these cookies turned out, I was surprised how soft they stayed.  I’m sure the brown sugar helped.

I used a combination of bittersweet chocolate chips and chunks of hazelnut milk chocolate.  I also used the full amount of chocolate and instant coffee.  In retrospect, I should have cut my chocolate chunks a little smaller.  They really melted down.

I did use the suggested parchment paper and am glad I did.  They came off the pan pretty easily, but I could see a gooey, chocolate mess if I did not use parchment.

Everyone who tried these cookies loved them, so they could make it into my rotation again.  Or, I may just add instant coffee or espresso to one of my other favorite cookie recipes: Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Hazelnuts.  A very similar recipe, but a tad bit more flour, and a bit less chocolate.

To get the recipe check out the book Baking with Julia, by Dorie Greenspan.

Zesty Lemon Thumbprint Cookies with Sweet Berry Jam

Thumbprint cookies were always a Christmas cookie must in our house when I was growing up. The lemon zest is a nice flavor spark and pairs best with berry jams. I like filling the cookies with jam before baking to get a bit of gooey, chewy goodness.
