Author Notes

I have been making different variations of this cookie for years and this is its current incarnation. It all started as a child when i would come into the city to work with my dad. We would stop at the now defunct David's cookies in what is now the park central hotel. Never a fan for chocolate chip i fell in love with the dark chocolate cookie with white chunks and thus the love affair began. —kapnic

Delicious. The cookies took at least ten minutes to bake, and hardened out of the oven.

Agreed... 9 minutes at 325° convection bake. 1 cup of semi-sweet is 6 oz. Amazing with candied ginger instead of chips!

I subbed 1 Cup of chopped walnuts for the cup of mixed chocolate chunks. Devine. I am not a fan of white chocolate. This is an excellent cookie recipe!

Oh yum. Add the salt. Bake 10 minutes. Make small. I got almost 4 doz. out of the recipe.

Does one cup of semi-sweet chocolate mean 1 cup of chips?

I wish someone would answer your question because I don't know either. A confusing recipe.

I use good quality semisweet chocolate for the cookie base, not chips. However, I would think a good quality chocolate chip like guittard would work.

The cookies came out great! But I had to bake them for about ten minutes.
