Dorie’s superlative recipe speaks for itself. Just adhere to the authoritative but kindly guidance she shares on her website, and you’ll have a truly special, very chocolaty, peace-inspiring batch of cookies to share with those you love. Or share them with strangers if you like making new friends.
This is a time to splurge on the very best chocolate you can find. For us it must be bittersweet, not semisweet, with at least 60% cacao. Our favorite combination for these cookies is deeply dark Valrhona cocoa powder, and roughly chopped Ghirardelli 60% bittersweet chocolate chips.
