Some days I am the laziest cook around. The good thing about the way that I cook is that you can’t always tell that I used the fewest pots possible. That’s one of the things that I really love about these cookies. They look hard but they’re not. I’m not sure if it was a compliment or an insult, but when I gave some of them to my mom she said that she thought they were store bought, because they looked so good. (She meant it to be a compliment, really).

You get your hands dirty with these bad boys. I know, I probably could have used a mixer, but then I would have needed to clean the mixer and where’s the fun in that?

I knead the dough directly in the pot. That’s how much I hate cleaning up a big chocolatey mess. Don’t knock it, it works.

There’s a big debate in my house on whether the cookies taste better hot out of the oven or cooled. I like them better after they’ve had a chance to cool because they are just too soft for me right out of the oven. I’m not alone. My son agrees with me so I can’t be totally crazy (unless, of course, crazy is a genetic thing that my son inherited from me). Gil and the girls like them best after they’ve only had a couple of minutes to cool. Don’t get me wrong, they are really good that way too. They just seem more fudgey to me after they’ve cooled off. I know, it defies logic, but that’s the way that it is.

No matter how you like them, these cookies are totally decadent and rich. Very yum!
