Light, chewy, dark and sweet, these bar cookies are nigh unto brownies if not outright cake, and they are delicious and almost the most satisfying route to chocolate satiation I have made from The Joy of Cookies yet. Awesomesauce! One cup and two tablespoons of butter. Six eggs. Seven ounces of semi-sweet chocolate plus half a cup of chocolate chips and a bit of ground coffee, and six ounces of white chocolate. And toasted sliced almonds atop a creamy bittersweet chocolate glaze. If this is coma-inducing stuff, bring it on!
I am done with school and have gone through the ceremony to receive my certificate. Now what? Who knows! There are hoops to jump through ahead but for now I am resting. Working still and reinserting myself into the art gallery docent world by cautious degrees, but resting. There will no doubt be more cookie-baking in my immediate future. After that? We will just have to wait and see.
