I have recently discovered that I love chocolate cookies (not a good thing)! You see, I am badly addicted to chocolate, um...and sugar. When I try to quit one food addiction another one fills in. For the time being, I am trying to quit my ice cream addiction which I have had for the past 4 months and I am doing really good (especially, when I have an abundance of cookies to fill the void)! ;)
I think one thing that makes chocolate cookies even better is adding dried cherries. I love biting into all that rich chocolate and then getting a little taste of a tart cherry. These cookies are good with or without the dried cherries.

Thick and Chewy Triple Chocolate Cookies
Adapted From The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook
Makes about 42 cookies

2 cups (10 ounces) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
16 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons instant coffee or espresso powder
10 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed (10 1/2 ounces) light brown sugar
1/2 cup (3 1/2 ounces)granulated sugar
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (optional)
2 cups dried tart cherries (optional)

If your butter is not softened, set it out on the counter and slice into little pieces so it can soften faster.

Whisk the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; set aside.

Melt the 16 ounces of chocolate in the microwave at 50% power stirring every 30 seconds or over a double boiler.

Whisk the eggs and vanilla together in a bowl. Sprinkle instant coffee/espresso powder on top and set aside.

Beat the butter and sugars together for about 45 seconds. Add the egg mixture. Add the melted chocolate in a steady stream and continue mixing for another 45 seconds. Scrape down bowl with a rubber spatula.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and the dried tart cherries if using.

Over the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit on the counter for about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Scoop cookie dough out using a 2 Tablespoon cookie scoop. Space them 1 1/2 inches apart on baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Note: As with all chocolate baked goods...they taste 100 x's better the next day!

The first time I went to NY my greatest discovery were the cookies . Fresh baked, the smell in the bag was amazing.
I will try to do yours , I hope to find the same smell.
P. S.- your photos are great

You found my weakness with all these yummy, thick, and chewy cookies! I can't decide if I like the regular chocolate chip or these better. Best if I sample both;D

Hi Tonya-I made these cookies over the weekend. They were wonderful. I served them for dessert after your pork tacos with homemade tortillas. I didn't add the cherries but put in a little ground chipotle and cinnamon. I served them with a dish of vanilla ice cream. Wonderful. I did have some trouble trying to print the recipe. When I click on the "printable recipe" the chocolate chip cookie recipe comes up. Not sure what the problem is. Love your site.

Pam, Thanks, so do you!

Elana, you won't be disappointed!

Kim, I know I love my cookies thick and chewy but I am going to make the thin and crispy version too. I like the regular chocolate chip better but these are nice for a change...I usually keep these in the freezer for when I need a chocolate fix.

Genola, THanks and I am happy you liked version sounds excellent! Thanks for letting me know about the link is fixed now so you should be able to print. :)
