Holy Cow--The Ultimate!

Here's "the cookie" after the dough has chilled for 24 hours.  This might quite possibly be the best looking cookie I've ever made.  I haven't tasted it yet, because I just love going and looking at it.  This time I actually baked three of them.  All perfectly round and all the same size.  They look like perfection.  I baked one this morning when the dough was chilled for about 20 hours and it was delicious--the mere 1/4 of it I tasted.  I really want to break into one of these others, but am waiting for my husband to get home so he can see.  Pure beauties!  (See my last post for a link to this amazing recipe.)  I salted the one in the middle as the recipe suggests, but have a feeling they are just perfect without the salt. 



Kevin got home just as I was posting this blog.  I had him hurry and look at the cookies, broke one apart, TASTED IT, of course, and took a few more pictures.  Now seriously, it hasn't been all that long since I was at a Jacques Torres store in NYC and had me one of his bad boys and I have to say, these taste THE SAME.  SO GOOD!

They really looked so good when I came today. I would have never thought to chill it for so long. Good tip.

Holy cow indeed! I am having serious chocolate issues right now, and that cookie is calling my name! Looks delish.

Wow Katrina! You're right, they are real beauties. Great pictures as well. I'll do them next week because I think I'll be able to find chocolate disks in the bigger supermarquet I go on weekends.
Can't wait!

Your cookies are absolutely GORGEOUS!! I've been following this saga on your blog, Anna's Cookie Madness blog, and the King Arthur Baker's Banter blog. I've truly enjoyed reading everyone's input. I'm going to mix up a bowl of these for my guys, even though I can't eat them myself. :-( I will enjoy the aroma though!! :-)
