Re: Chocolate Cookies

[quote="ShawnR"]I'm looking for a recipe that I remember from a restaurant in eastern South Dakota 40 years ago. It was for chocolate cookies, but what made these different is that they were more like cake than cookies--soft, crumb like cake, moist, dark chocolate without the gray/brown look of many recipes. They were made up in advance and kept in the refridgerator/cooler and cooked off every morning. I've tried many butter/sugar/egg recipes but the all come out too crispy and not moist.


My mom has this really old chocoloate cookie that is made from..don't gag...rendered chicken fat. You roll it in powdered sugar before baking. It is really soft and chewy.

I would like to find a particular cookie recipe. I had one of these cookies at the Tri-City Medical Center's Ladies Auxillary's Strawberry Festival in Carlsbad, California about 20 years ago. You would have sworn they were made with coconut, but the flakes were actually dried potato flakes. The recipe wasn't in the cookbook they were selling that year, and I would really like to find it.

Someone mentioned hogs head... when I was a child and came home from school, there was this WONDERFUL aroma coming from the kitchen. I couldn't help but follow my nose to the pot on the stove, but when I lifted the lid, lo and behold, there was a hog's head and he looked like he was smiling at me!!! He still had corn in his teeth! My grandmother was visiting us at the time and was in the process of making mincemeat! I was scarred for life! Needless to say I haven't eaten mincemeat in over 50 years... and I don't think they really use meat in it today but I STILL can't stomach it.
