Double Fudge Brownie Cookies

IMG_3416Double fudge you’ll-complain-thery’re-too-rich-yet-you-know-you’re-going-to-eat-six cookies.

Here is another cookie that was to be included in our cookie company.  Clark had the idea to call it “The Shit” cookie, so when people asked why we call it “The Shit” cookie, we would respond “Cos it’s the Shit!”  A lot of fudge like brownie whatever you want to say cookies have a tendency to be crazy sweet.  This cookie is more dense and brownie like.  Especially the next day.  The day they come out of the oven they are gooey, melt in your mouth amazing.

There is a pastry shop here in New York that has a flourless chocolate fudge cookie.  I popped into the store to try one.  Now, I live for sugar, but this cookie hurt me.  I met a lady that worked for this pastry shop at one point and she told me if I knew how much powdered sugar went into the cookie I would cry.  Apparently, she could tell I am a very sensitive person.

Anyhooter, this cookie has a great richness to it without having that crazy sweetness factor .  It has a fudgey and brownie like consistency that travels well in purses and pockets.  Maybe not in a pocket on a hot day.  Which in New York it doesn’t look like that’s coming anytime soon.  Sadly.
