Flour's Double Chocolate Cookies

These are a perfect 10 from our family, they are heavenly.  Please don't try these double chocolate cookies from Flour unless you really like chocolate, because they are chocolate overload :).  Aaron actually asked for these again for his birthday rather than the usual Nestle Tollhouse cookies, so that tells you how delicious these are.  The recipe makes 16 cookies for me, and each cookie is about 287 calories.  Here's the easy recipe:

4 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, finely shaved
5 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small chunks
1/2 c unsalted butter
1/2 t vanilla
1 1/2 c sugar
4 eggs
1/2 c flour
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t cream of tartar
1/8 t salt
1/4 t instant espresso or coffee powder

Melt the 4 oz unsweetened chocolate, 5 oz bittersweet chocolate, and the butter in a microwave, stirring frequently to prevent burning.  Whisk in the vanilla and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, beat together the sugar and eggs for about 5 minutes, or until light, thick, and pale yellow.  On low speed, slowly add the chocolate mixture and mix for about 15 seconds.  In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt, espresso powder, the shaved unsweetened chocolate and the small chopped bittersweet chocolate.  Using a rubber spatula, fold the flour mixture into the sugar-butter mixture just until the flour is totally incorporated and the dough is evenly mixed.  Cover the mixture tightly and refrigerate over night.  When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees, and drop the dough in 1/4 c balls onto a cookie sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes, then cool on the cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes, then cool completely.

Serve with milk and die from chocolate happiness :)
