Recipe

David “the Cookie King” Leiderman says of his cookies: “these are easy to make and absolutely delicious. They develop a butterscotch flavor as they bake and are extremely fragile.”

Yield: Makes 20 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1¾ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 8 ounces imported bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously butter a baking sheet.

2. Combine the butter, brown sugar, salt, vanilla, and egg in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer or by hand, beat the ingredients to make a smooth batter. Add the flour and chocolate and stir until no traces of flour remain.

3. Drop the batter by heaping tablespoonfuls on the prepared baking sheet, spacing the cookies 2 inches apart. Bake until the edges of the cookies are barely brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove and let cool on a wire rack.

    Thanks for that catch, @joanmichel180! We've replaced the image with bittersweet chocolate.

    looks yummy...haven't tried it yet but certainly will. In the meantime, take another look at the block of chocolate here.... looks to me definately not bittersweet, more like the milk variety
