Guys I made cookies.
But this isn't really news. I make cookies at least bi-weekly. And I usually bake something about once a week. (Lately it's been more like 2-3 times a week. Out of control.) It's one of my favorite things to do. The news is that I actually documented them this time, something I'm going to try to start doing regularly so that when I tell people, "hey I bake stuff, and I can bake something for you too", I can have something to show for myself.
These cookies are insane. They are gargantuan. They are rich. I can barely muscle through one of them. That's why the recipe only makes 12 cookies, yep, you read that right, 12 cookies. You don't need more than that. They're delicious and extremely filling. Soft, chewy, dense, and even better the second day as stated in the recipe.

Note: I know my food photography skills are less than stellar. Also my camera is less than stellar, which could be part of the reason. Someday maybe I will have a nice camera and nice food-documenting skills. For now, please enjoy these moderate quality pictures as best you can.
