Dorie's Chocolate Chunkers.....


Another yummy cookie that everyone liked! I took some to work and my boss said "now that's a cookie". The only change I made was to use Craisins instead of raisins because I had a bag open and needed to use them in something. I'm glad I used the Craisins, they helped cut the sweetness; if I made these again I would not add the chocolate chips just because of how sweet they were. These are very rich, chocolaty cookies; one or two were enough, they were very filling. The cookies did not spread very much when cooked, so I gave them a slight tap with a spatula when they came out to flatten a bit. I left them on the parchment paper on racks to cool down before trying to remove them. They definately need to be cool or they may crack! Thanks to Claudia at Fool for Food for picking a winner!

that should be the name of these cookies - "now THAT'S a cookie!"

Craisins definitely cut the sweetness, I agree. Otherwise, I think I'd manage half a cookie before just giving up!

I laughed about you slapping the cookie! They were rich and decadent!

Yes, these were very chocolate-y! I made smaller cookies -- a good idea with cookies this rich.
