Chocolate Crackle Cookie Bake-Along
Thanks to Megan for a bake-along challenge. Last week Megan made Chocolate Crackle Cookies using a recipe from Martha Stewart. Yesterday I was finally able to fit them into my schedule. I've made these before, using a different recipe, but not often because I always thought it was a huge investment in chocolate. How my perceptions have changed! After Daring Bakers and Tuesdays with Dorie, 8 ounces of chocolate doesn't even cause me to cringe anymore.
My only issue with the dough was it's stickiness, even after chilling. I had to keep refrigerating the dough after 4 or 5 balls because it would stick to my fingers. I think I lost several cookies just from that. But, I did prevail, and I have to say the cookies are delicious. For science's sake, though, I think I will track down my previous recipe and do some comparison baking. For science, you know.
You can find the recipe on Megan's blog.
OK, Megan. What's next on the bake-along agenda?
