I returned to the car and Kathy and I started on the 30 minute ride home. At a lull in the conversation, I casually mentioned that I had purchased a couple of Double Chocolate Cookies along with the sandwiches. Scharffen Berger Double Chocolate Cookies. The car swerved violently. Struggling to compose herself and appear nonchalant, she quietly cleared her throat and said "Have you ever tasted Scharffen Berger chocolate?" I gave her a sidelong glance as I gingerly reached into the bag to retrieve a morsel. I broke off a small piece and put it into my mouth. I remember instantly seeing a brilliant light and hearing a choir of angels singing" Oh sweet mystery of life at last I've found you".........Thankfully I was already seated, because I surely would have fallen to my knees. If I had been the one driving the car, this posting would have ended up being an obituary. I can see the headline now...."Sisters plummet for Scharffen Berger". Okay, I'm joking but yes..... it was that good. It was truly the richest and most decadent chocolate cookie that I had ever tasted. IN MY LIFE.
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature (one stick)
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
That last sentence is an absolute joke. "Several days?" You will be very lucky if these cookies last several hours.
So, if these fabulous cookies will only survive a few hours.....I wonder how they would hold up to shipping?
I wonder if I packed them tightly in parchment paper them sealed them in an airtight container.....
hmmmmm....how would they hold up?
Or better still WHERE would they end up??
I guess we'll never know......
or will we??
