From Barbara Fairchild’s new cookbook, Bon Appetit Desserts comes this Dark and White Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Ginger Recipe. The addition of crystallized ginger gives these chocolate chip cookies a surprising kick. Crystallized ginger can be found in the spice section or the Asian foods section of most supermarkets.
Ingredients for Dark and White Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Ginger:
2 2/3 cups bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup chopped crystallized ginger
3 1/2 ounces high-quality white chocolate (such as Lindt or Perugina), very coarsely chopped
NOTES: Makes about 2 dozen. Cookies can be made 2 days ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 heavy large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
Stir 2 cups chocolate chips with butter in heavy small saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth; cool 10 minutes.
Beat eggs and brown sugar in large bowl until well blended. Beat in melted chocolate mixture and vanilla, then flour.
