Cook the Book: Black Forest Chocolate Cookies
The authors of Baked: New Frontiers in Baking, this week's Cook the Book pick, bemoan the unfortunate American translations of that German classic, Black Forest cake. All too often, it's sorry sandwiches of dry chocolate sponge and gloopy cherry preserves, smeared in "whipped topping."
Today's recipe uses dried cherries and "utmost respect" for the original to achieve a condensed version of the German dessert favorite. Black Forest Chocolate Cookies are deeply chocolatey, and studded with white chocolate chips and those sharp dried cherries. You don't want to overbake them--they're at their best when slightly gooey, straight out of the oven.
