Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are special. Everyone I know – regardless of age – loves them and savors them with equal enthusiasm. While my memories of eating cookies as a kid were mostly ones that my mom baked for our birthday parties, ranging from coconut macroons to chocolate and vanilla checkered biscuits, I didn’t ever bake any myself growing up.

I made everything, from strawberry scones to chocolate mint cookies! There was no stopping me. I have since then tried my hand at a variety of different types of chocolate cookies, and so when someone says there’s a new bakery that makes the best cookies in town, my husband and I make it a point to go. … More Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
