I wasn't too sure about the recipe this week; i wasn't sure if i could handle that much chocolate in a cookie. I know most of you will think I'm weird but i really can't eat a lot of chocolate, otherwise I'm in bed with a headache for the rest of the day. I really had my fill of chocolate with last weeks Chocolate Gingerbread. Nevermind i thought, i'll still bake them and distribute them amongst my friends.
I followed the recipe and didn't have any problems, except for the almost overwhelming urge to put an egg into the batter. I used Fleur de Sel, which my lovely friend Sandy brought back for me from her holiday in France. After a couple of hours in the freezer, i tried to slice the cookies. Ha ha, i ended up having to use a huge serrated knife, and i still ended up with crumbled dough and bits of chocolate everywhere.
I'm not sure if i left the cookies in the oven too long, or if my oven was a little too hot, but my cookies really spread and were very flat. I had problems even trying to move the cookies to the rack as they just crumbled and broke. Hmm. So i just left them to cool on the baking sheet to cool.
I didn't like them. I found them too rich and too chocolaty. I portioned them off in preparation of handing them out to my friends.
This morning i thought i'd try it again to see if it would taste any different. Well, i've already eaten two whilst writing this blog ;)
They are delicious, and light! Ooh, i don't want to give them away now!!!!
