Recipes: Chicken with Capers and Devlishly Good Cookies

I love the Simply Recipes blog. It’s one of my favorite resources for quick, easy dinners that are creative and impressive. One of my favorites is Chicken Cutlets with Capers. I made it for dinner last night and it was ready 15 minutes after I walked in the door.

It would be a great dinner to serve to company, especially with a loaf of crusty bread and these amazing chocolate chocolate chip cookies based on a recipe from Death By Chocolate by Marcel Desaulniers (food porn at it’s best).

Deep Dark Chocolate Fudge Cookies
Makes 3-3.5 dozen

1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate
4 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 c brown sugar, packed
12 tbs unsalted butter, softened
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt into a bowl and set aside.

Chop both chocolates and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave in 15 sec intervals stirring in between until fully melted.

Combine the brown sugar and butter in electric mixer. Beat until soft and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each egg. Add the vanilla and beat 30 seconds. Add the melted chocolate beat until just combined. Add flour mixture and beat until combined. Add chocolate chips and beat another 10 seconds.

Spoon by rounded tablespoons onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until just set. Cool on pans for 5 minutes then on cooling rack or just eat them right off the pan letting the chocolate chips burn your mouth like I do šŸ™‚
