Cookies with Couverture

Serving : 1 dozen cookies

Preparation time: 15

Cooking time: 10

Total time: 25

Description:

Cookies crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

The conventional recipe is to use supermarket semi-sweet chocolate chips. For a cafe bakery taste and sophistication, use K&W Milk or Dark couverture (milk or dark). The couverture will also balance the sweetness of the dough. Leave the couverture in small chunks for a chunky mouthfeel or shave the couverture for a smoother texture.

Be sure to spread the dough in even sizes on the baking tray.

Have fun baking!
