The cookie came out as promised. Light crispy crunchy outer and soft inner and mighty full of chocolate goodness. This is now two recipes (the first being the chinese sausage focaccia) and two wows! If you are a cookie and a chocolate lover, these are definitely worth a try.
A last note... a friend asked me about glucose that's called for in the recipe. In the book, it said if you don't have glucose, use 2 tablespoons of corn syrup in a pinch.
