I love chocolate. I love cookies. I love chocolate cookies. These cookies are truly, truly, truly outrageous.
First I melted a whole bunch of chocolate. Oooh yea, chocolate. I didn't really want to use chocolate chips but it was all I had.
Then I sifted some flour and baking powder and a tiny bit of salt.
In another bowl I whisked up some oil, eggs, brown sugar and vanilla.
Then I added the melted chocolate to the egg mixture. You have to add it slowly so as not to cook the eggs.
Next I mixed in the flour mixture.
And then the chocolate chips.
Delicious cookie dough.
I dropped the dough by 1/8 cup on a cookie sheet, and then pressed them down.
I baked them for a bit and oh man delicioussss.
Seriously... look at that. Make these and eat them.
These cookies are soft and chocolatey and delicious and I love them. This is one of the most incomprehensible description of anything I've baked. But it involves chocolate. And I love chocolate.
Outrageous Chocolate Cookies
Adapted from an adaptation of a Martha Stewart recipe.
12 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup all-purpose flour, plus an extra 1/3 cup
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
¾ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Melt chocolate in a double boiler. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a mixing bowl, beat oil, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Mix in melted chocolate and then the flour mixture until just combined. If the batter is too wet, add the extra flour little by little. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop 1/8 cup portions of dough 3 inches apart onto baking sheets. Press down (the cookies do not spread much). Bake until cookies are crackly and edges are set, but centres are still gooey, 7-10 minutes. Cool on sheets for 10 minutes then transfer to racks to cool completely. Makes about two dozen cookies.
