Finally! Triple-chocolate cookies! Sort of. Since these didn't work out, I thought I'd give it another go. Yesterday, I made up a batch of triple chocolate "chip" (in actuality, Lindt dark chocolate, soy chocolate and vegan chocolate cut into chunks) cookie dough, and have been baking small batches in our toaster oven on the convection setting. Notes: Not bringing the chilled dough to room temperature for a half-hour results in a cookie in which the sugar burns. The white chocolate ends up melting into the cookie, so this is not a good use of "premium" white chocolate (i.e., one made exclusively with cocoa butter as the fat). Finally, chilling these after baking yields the best results: the chocolate sets again, making for a nice "bite" in the finished cookie.
