This is Carter Were's recipe for the "really good" chocolate cookies you can buy at Were Bros at 480 Richmond Rd, Grey Lynn.
- Preheat oven to 175C. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
- Cream butter with caster sugar until pale and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, incorporating each well. Working in 3-4 stages, gently fold the dry ingredients into the creamed mix, incorporating well at each stage.
- Fold in melted chocolate and mix to a smooth batter. Chill mixture for 10 minutes.
- Roll large spoonfuls (approx. 60g) into balls, space generously on a baking paper-lined oven tray and bake for 17 minutes until risen and cracked on top. Leave to cool on the tray.
These cookies would be great to take on a picnic. Here are more of Warren's transportable ideas
