I was informed by one of my coworkers that I had to make a nut-free cookie for her this week (she’s dealing with some allergy tests right now). So demanding, right?

For one thing, there’s almost as much cocoa powder in this cookie as there is flour. That’s a lot! And the flavour? Amazing. All that cocoa plus the addition of bittersweet chocolate chunks makes for an incredibly rich and chocolate-y cookie. (more…)
