TWD: Chocolate Chunkers


This week's selection - pg. 70 in Baking: from my home to yours


I love these cookies! It's a good chock-full-of-chunks cookie. I started to leave out the raisins and nuts altogether but talked myself out of it and told myself to trust Dorie. Instead, I out the raisins in as called for, but only put the (at most) 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts I had lying around waiting to be used up, and added another cup of semi-sweet chunks to keep it chunky. I wish I had taken the time to throw some peanuts in the food processor and made the recipe as written. The raisins are perfect in it, and it's just missing a peanutty crunch. Ooops. Now I know. Really, really, really, trust Dorie!

I really liked the peanutty crunch, so maybe you'll have to make these again :) Walnuts and raisins are definitely good to cut the chocolate though.

I loved the raisins in these. I left out the nuts, but wouldn't mind adding some pecans next time. Great job!

These cookies are great! I'm beginning to think there isn't a bad recipe in the book :)

Glad you liked them, we did too! Yes, I think the crunch of the nuts and the sweet/tart fruit both brought something good to the mix.
