Chocolate Brownie Cookies

When (another) rainy day and a chocolate craving take place simultaneously, a chocolate cookie recipe can’t be far behind. This one from an old issue of Bon Appetit is both heavenly and ridiculously easy. It’s a cross between a cookie and a brownie – the egg whites give it a chewy texture that contrasts beautifully with the deep chocolate flavor – and the cacao nibs provide an aftertaste of chocolate that immediately makes you think you need to eat another one. This is a shiny, beautiful cookie, worthy of a hostess gift or the final course of a festive dinner party. Keep this one in mind for Christmas!
