B.I.T.E. Eats: Hooker Cookies

confessions of a chocolate whore

I collect chocolate cookie recipes.  Unlike most collections, they don’t gather dust.  In fact, these cookies may not even make it into the oven – the raw dough is that good – and once they are baked…well, you have been warned.

  • 1/2 pound semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar, plus additional for rolling
  • 3/4 cup ground almonds (you can substitute other ground nuts)

Melt chocolate.  Blend the butter into the chocolate.  Beat the eggs and gradually add sugar until ribbons form when you lift the beaters.  Stir in the ground nuts.  Cover and refrigerate for seveal hours until firm.

Form the dough into balls.  Roll them in sugar.  Alternatively, you can roll the dough into logs before chilling, wrap the logs in waxed paper, and, when the dough has firmed up, slice it into disks.  I’ve also used a cookie press with some success (Thanks, Aimless).

Bake the cookies at 325 degrees for 9-12 minutes.
