Why This Recipe Works

To create a chocolate cookie recipe that would produce a cookie with a center of hot fudge sauce and a deep, complex chocolate flavor, we relied on basic ingredients (chocolate, sugar, eggs, butter, flour, baking powder, and salt) put together in a very particular way. Technique (a modified creaming method) and proportion (1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of flour to 8 ounces of chocolate) were all-important to our chocolate cookie recipe. And so, it turned out, was the nature of the chocolate we used. The more highly processed semisweet chocolate tasted smoother and richer than unsweetened, and Dutch-processed cocoa, which many bakers find superior in flavor to regular cocoa, further enriched the chocolate flavor.
