Baking with B: Double Trouble Chocolate Chip Cookies

Remember how Lucy’s cake was “chocolate chocolate”? Well, these cookies are like her cake’s little brothers- all cakey, and gooey and sprinkled throughout with melt-in-your-mouth-chocolatey-chip-goodness.

Why are they double the trouble, you ask? Because they disappear from your kitchen in double the amount of time of any cookie I have ever made, ever. That’s why after I popped them out of the oven, I grabbed a stack of cookies and a glass of milk and high-tailed it out of there. They may not even make it off of the cooling rack. Seriously. I barely had time to take this picture.
