Dark chocolate chunk cookies

What I planned to make this afternoon was chocolate chip cookies. However, when it came time to add the chocolate chips I made the sad discovery that there were none (which is strange because I almost always have them on hand...). What I did have on hand was Scharffen Berger dark chocolate. This chocolate is my favorite! I made the ultimate sacrifice for the cookies and chopped up all 6 oz. I had in the drawer.















These turned out so good. There are varying sizes of chocolate pieces - from bigger chunks right down to the chocolate dust that was formed as I chopped. It all went in the bowl! These were thin and crispy and absolutely delicious. I felt so June Cleaver-ish baking cookies after school - and then I looked outside and saw my daughters sitting at the patio table, each with their laptops doing homework - then I felt a little more Jane Jetson-ish. Either way - the kids were happy :-)

OY! Hello good lookin' cookies! WOOOOOOOO.

June Cleaver never had it so good, by the way. These are fantastic in every way. Way to sacrifice your fave for the betterment of "guinnahkind."

I doubt Jane Jetson could hold a candle to these finger licking good cookies!

Kleopatra - I love that - "guinnahkind" - we do call the kids "little guins" - someday I'll have to post on the origin...

Thanks Teddy :-) I would like a robot to do clean up but other than that...

Dreena - thanks for the comment - both on the cookies and the pizzas. I love that "holy doodle" - sounds SO much like something I would say!

Freedom - sometimes cookies are just good for your soul :-) It made my girls happy to eat them and me happy to bake them...

Yum...cookies.

Crystal and I are going to try out some Sunflower butter cookies soon. We still haven't determined what recipe to use since sunflower butter is thinner than peanut butter. Hopefully we will have time this weekend. Again...yum.
