Directions

  1. Melt the bittersweet chocolate chips and butter in the top of a double boiler or in a heatproof bowl over barely simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until thick; stir in the chocolate mixture.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder; stir into the chocolate mixture. Gently mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  4. Using a sheet of plastic wrap, form the dough into two logs, each 2 inches in diameter and about 8 inches long. Because the dough will be quite soft, use the plastic wrap to hold the dough in the log shape. Wrap tightly; refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until firm.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.
  6. Unwrap the dough. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 3/4-inch slices. Place the slices 1 1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until a shiny crust forms on top of the cookies but the interior is still soft. Let cool on the cookie sheet. Then remove from the cookie sheet with a metal spatula.
  8. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.

I made this cookie as directed and it is yummy, however I had a hard time making it into a round log. It was very runny before it went into the freezer, I think next time I will put the entire batter into the fridge for a few minutes before rolling it onto Saran Wrap. I stored them in an airtight container with a slice of bread and they were just as yummy if not better the next day.

I'm not a fan. The 'dough' was more like cake batter. The cookies themselves were like eating a great big ball of melted chocolate. Just too much.

These were pretty good- not the best I've ever had though. Dough was pretty easy to make, I melted the chips using the microwave. Hardest part was rolling it into a log. If I were to make this again I would probably just roll them into balls. I reduced the sugar to a little more than 3/4 cup and left out the walnuts.

These are fabulous. A bit fussier than your average chocolate chip cookie but totally worth it. When they say the dough will be quite soft, that's a bit of an understatement, but it does firm up in the fridge. I made the dough on Saturday and baked a dozen then, and kept the rest of the dough in the fridge a few days and it was just as good baked later. I ended up with about 3 dozen large cookies full of amazing chocolate goodness.

Delicious and very chocolatey. They were terrific even after freezing the log of dough for 3 weeks--just a tad bit drier than original. DO NOT overcook or they get dry and crumbly (still delicious, though!)

These are REALLY chocolatey! I left out the walnuts, but other than that I followed the recipe. When I mixed the chocolate chips into the dough, it thickened up quickly and I didn't think it was difficult at all to roll into logs. It was hard to cut into slices later because of the chocolate chips, but they didn't have to be nice-looking slices, so that wasn't much of an issue. I froze a few of my logs and made some cookies a week later, and they were just as good.

If you are looking for a very chocolatety cookie this is the one for you! I didn't end up rolling it into a log but I just stuck the dough into the frig for about 35 minutes before rolling into balls. Then I cooked for 12 minutes. I put the dough back in the frig each time to keep it cold. In addition to the choc chips I added heath bits. Very good!
