Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookies

As most of you now know, I work as Manager at the Mashpee 99 Restaurant. I love it and despite the long hours, I have fun doing it. This month, the 99 Restaurants are raising money for the Boys and Girls clubs around the North East and my participation is in the form of a bake sale! Of course!!!
Time to try new recipes and this one is a keeper!!!!!

Decadent Chocolate Chips Cookies

20 cookies

1 lb (450 g) bittersweet chocolate
4 Tbsp (60g) butter
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup (200 g) sugar
1/2 cup (80 g) flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
12 oz extra dark chocolate chips

In a medium saucepan, over very low heat (or over a pot of simmering water), melt the butter and chocolate. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the whisk, beat the eggs and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla and salt.

In another bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder.

Fold in the chocolate mixture with a rubber spatula, taking care not to deflate the batter. Add the dry ingredients also without deflating the batter. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour the batter in a shallow dish. Freeze for about one hour.

With a 2-oz ice cream scoop, scoop the cookies on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 13 to 15 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.
