TwD: Baking Double Chocolate Cookies with Julia

20131102_232341

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted for Tuesdays with Dorie; four months to be exact. I wasn’t planning on baking this week’s assignment either for fear of unintentional snacking on leftovers. However, my friend (Codename: Candelabra) was in town, so I was able to pawn these treats off on her and the Fort Wayne breast cancer center nursing staff, including Candelabra’s O.R. scrub tech/navigator (Codename: Cilantro)!

The few cookies I did sample were soft, velvety, melty, and decadent, similar to a moist and silky brownie. Actually, Candelabra has coined these cookies “C. Webb cookies” because they’re “super chocolatey and delicious” like the former Michigan “Fab Five” member/former NBA All-Star/current NBA on TNT commentator, Chris Webber:

(That last photo was to show you C.Webb’s humor.) Whatever these cookies are called, it’s a smart idea to have plenty of friends around lest you be tempted to eat them all yourself. Which you will! If you’d like to try your hand at these double chocolate cookies or “C. Webb cookies”, pick up a copy of Baking with Julia: Savor the Joys of Baking with America’s Best Bakers and join the bi-monthly baking group, Tuesdays with Dorie, where we choose recipes to collectively bake each month!

    All that chocolate has my attention! Sounds delicious, whatever you call them. Glad they went to a worthy friend.

    Too funny! But I do appreciate the art of figuring out just when it’s safe to bake, leftovers-wise.

    I love cookies! I made some double chocolate sometime ago that we’re made with olive oil and they were good. Yours look very similar. Have a great day. Andi

    Just in time for the arrival of cold weather; an excuse to put on the oven and a better excuse to make something delicious.

    Welcome back, Yummy Chunklet.
    These were fantastic cookies – rich! rich! rich! … and unfortunately: rich! The only way to get them out of my sight was to deep freeze them… :-)
    I was born with a mouth full of sweet tooth and I am constantly fighting with my “voice inside” :-) – this time, the double chocolate cookies won!

    So glad you didn’t skip these. You spread a lot of joy with your donation! I split these up between my sons and got them out of the house. They want more :)

    These were really, really good! I pawned some off on friends, too, but i kept enough so as not to have any regrets.

    I sent most of the cookies into work with the husband. I intended to take a few to a friends husband (she being gluten free), whom we were having dinner with, but we ate them up before we made it to dinner. They were that good. Glad you did not miss out on these!

    Dreamy. And I’m not talking about the cookies.

    I just read a book about civil war spies, and now I think everyone deserves a codename. My mind is spinning with possibilities…

    Lol. Didn’t he play for Sacramento? I had no idea he had a second life. I loved these cookies. I pawned mine off at work or I would have eaten them all myself.

    I admire that you plan ahead to give your cookies to friends! I must adopt your approach, especially this time of year! Double chocolate–what’s not to really love! :-)

    As a chocolate fiend, I don’t think I could resist anything that has “Double Chocolate” before it. These cookies sounds like pure heaven.

    I agree you better have several friends around before you make these as we all have our weaknesses. I am sure they are also chewy too and that my friend is a hard one for me to resist. Take Care, BAM

    Taking a cue from your strategic cookie distribution, I should make these while I have hungry young men here for the holidays, I definitely won’t have to worry about eating too many.
