Yield:
24 cookies
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large yolk
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 ounces white chocolate chips
Directions

Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cloves together in a medium bowl. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove pan from the heat, add the bittersweet chocolate, then set aside until melted.

Whisk the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla together in a medium bowl, then slowly whisk in chocolate. Stir in the flour mixture to make a loose dough. Don't overwork the dough. Fold in the chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (or 325 if convection option is available).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form dough into balls, about 2 inches or 1 1/2 ounces each, and put on the prepared baking sheets, leaving a couple inches between the cookies. Bake until outside is crackly, but the center is still moist, about 13 to 15 minutes, or 12 in convection. Cool on a rack.

Very tasty cookies. The nutmeg is a great addition, it makes these cookies a little bit different than all the other triple chocolate cookie recipes out there. Be very careful when baking because if you make it the full 15 minutes you may burn the cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
kudos to food network kitchens for this recipe. tried it out today for a party im going to tomm. they are the moist and fudgy and chocolatey, more so then some of the more complicated recipes i have made. They are kid and adult friendly, they travel well of course, and they are so rich that you dont have to make that many because 1-2 and a glass of milk is all you need. So good! would recommend!!! p.s. i DID add the cloves and i didnt find them overpowering at all. I think some people might be overmeasuring or something. I think the cloves are really needed because it gives you that little hint of something special in the cookie. I cant imagine it tasting so unique and perfect without it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cloves seemed to overpower the chocolate taste. I will try making them again without the cloves. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made these last weekend and they were perfection! The ground cloves really push these into the "Christmas" category, the flavor brings you into the gingerbread arena in a spectacular way. The instructions were were easy to follow however I would suggest that FN change the recipe name to Triple Chocolate "Christmasy" cookies! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicous. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best chocolate cookies ever! I left the cloves out b/c I did not know if my kids would like the cookies with the flavor of cloves. They were incredible! I accidentally baked a sheet without refrigerating them first and when I realized it I refrigerated the rest and then baked them and I have to say there was not any difference... I would like to make them with the cloves since I love cloves. Maybe next time. You should know however that the do not look like the picture. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo GooooooooooooooooooooooD!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are my favorite chocolate cookies. I have been making them for a couple of years now, usually around the holidays or just whenever I'm in the mood! They are always a huge hit with the family and end up getting eaten pretty quickly. I've never put the cloves in them, because I don't like cloves. I also make the dough part with semi-sweet chocolate chips and then put milk chocolate and white chocolate chips in them. Makes them super rich, but oh so delicious! Also, I refuse to use anything other than Ghiradelli chocolate when I make it. I think that using really good chocolate makes a big difference, since all you taste in this recipe is chocolate.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMGosh ~ these are soooo gooood!! i left the cloves in - love it! i made these for a cookie exchange party i'm going to this week and THANK GOD i doubled the batch, so i might actually have some left to take to the party - they are that good! definitely going to be a yearly favorite! t item not reviewed by moderator and published
OK, I made these with cloves the first time.....AWFUL!!! Because if you don't like cloves, you won't like them in anything. Next time I added 1 Teaspoon instant coffee powder instead of the cloves. It made the chocolate taste very rich without tasting the coffee. Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa does that all the time and it's delicious. I also used walnuts instead of the white chocolate. These are seriously good chocolate ookies! I will definitely make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i downloaded this recipe about 4 years ago and i love it. i am not a big fan of cloves so i have never added them and by not adding them i dont feel like it takes away from the cookies at all. the cookies always turn out light, airy and delicious. it is now a staple to make during the holiday season. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Cloves are a great addition!! It's only 1/4 t. and so perfect. You need to add cloves or they are just like other chocolate chocolate chip cookies. I did NOT have white chocolate chips, but I did have white chocolate candy (for candy making so I melted about 10 disks in a zip-lock baggie, snipped the tip and swirled over each when they came out of the oven. Very pretty... and tasty. Awesome recipe. Will make again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I always get asked to make these cookies come holiday season by my fiance's family. Try the cloves, they really make the cookies stand out beyond a basic back-of-a-package recipe. The flavor is rich and warm - perfect for fall/winter! I add peanut butter chips instead of the white chocolate because I'm not a fan of white chocolate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies were great!!!!! I didn't add the cloves. After they came out of the oven I dusted the top with powdered sugar.I made the dough early on in the day and baked them after dinner. Still tasted great!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty cookies! I omitted the cloves per recommendation of other reviews. Very easy to make and super yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This one of my favorite chocolate cookie. I omitted the cloves. I left out the bitter sweet, will add it next time. The cookie is easy to work with since it is kept cold. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought these cookies were great, easily the best chocolate cookie I've made. Like other reviewers, I chose to omit the clove. I also skipped the white chocolate chips and simply added some extra semi-sweet chocolate chips. I used basic Nestle chocolate chips and Baker's bittersweet chocolate; they came out so chocolatey that I can only imagine what a higher quality chocolate would do for them. I made the cookies smaller than instructed and slightly flattened them before baking. The result was soft, chewy cookies. I don't know why some people's seem to have come out cake-like, but maybe try to make them a little smaller and see if that helps. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies are ok, but they could be great without the cloves. Do not overcook and do not add the cloves. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are the best chocolate cookies (ithout the cloves)! Be sure not to overcook which significantly changes the cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used about two teaspoons of instant espresso powder instead of the cloves. Best chocolate cookies I've ever made! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I couldn't wait for the cookies to set-up, I just had to bake off a dozen and try them. I loved the balance between sweet and savory that the bitter chocolate/cloves brings to the flavor. Also, the light airy texture and smooth rich chocolate flavor delight all the cookie conosiuers in my house. All I can say is WOW; try and you too will be smiling! Happy Holidays. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am not in love with this cookie. The combination of chocolates is lovely, but I am not a fan of the cloves. Has more of a brownie texture than a cookie texture Also, it was a bit difficult to spoon this dough out after refridgerating.. Good if you are looking for a more savory than sweet chocolate cookie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really liked this recipe, but if I made it again I would omit the cloves. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cloves were an excellent addition. It really makes the cookie. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They are different and delicious. I made them in May 2009. Chocolatey, chewy and the cloves add a delightful hint of woodsiness to the cookies. Even if one doesn't like spices in their cookies, one wouldn't really know what it is that give the cookies so much character. I love them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am a big baker, and these have to be the best cookies I have ever made. Have three boys and they went crrrrazy for them item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was a little skeptical about the cloves but the flavor really mellowed after letting the dough chill for 2hrs. The cookies ended up just having this slight spicy-ness to them kind of like mexican hot cocoa in cookie form! I'd recommend using maybe half the amount of clove for anyone not sure about the taste, my guess is you would end up with just a subtle hint of spice that would make them taste great. PS- be careful not to over bake, take them out when you think they look like they would need a few more minutes because they get too cakey otherwise. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I skipped the cinnamon, and added nuts instead of white chocolate. I used a tea scoop to measure out the cookies, and made sure the dough was well chilled. My cookies came out soft in the middle, and firm on the outside. They have a nice cake like texture, and are not overly sweet. Certainly VERY chocolatety. Even my hubby loved them, and he does not usually like cookies, item not reviewed by moderator and published
Moist and delicious! Might leave out the cloves next time. My husband didn't like the cloves but everyone else did. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been searching for a recipe like this one and am very pleased with the results. I did leave out the cloves. They turned out moist on the inside and slightly crisp on the outside, like a brownie. I also used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet chocolate. My daughter gives them two thumbs up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i very much enjoyed this recipe. however, i made a lot of substitutions: i omitted the cloves, i melted semi-sweet chocolate instead of bittersweet (for which i decreased the amount of sugar) and i didn't have white chocolate, so i put in dark chocolate. they were very chocolatey and enjoyable. now i'm going to use them for mint chocolate ice cream sandwiches! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked the cookies alright, but I really don't care for cloves in my chocolate cookies. I was reluctant to follow that part of the recipe, but I thought maybe it would bring out more chocolate flavor and not be noticed. I was wrong. I'm not a fan of spice/chocolate cookies! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good addition to our Christmas cookies. These cookies come out thick and moist, cake-like. The clove flavor really comes through in every bite and is delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have not made the cookie yet.But I'm leaving out the clove (not A fan of clove)But I agree with the person who said why doesn't the picture come up with the recipe so it can be printed with it .What I do is print the recipe then go back and print the picture.It would be alot easier if they just put the picture with the recipe for us. item not reviewed by moderator and published

delicious cookies. I don't know how i ever lived with out them. one of the best cookies i have ever had item not reviewed by moderator and published
I substituted the cloves for cinnamon due to what others had stated in their reviews, and I am glad I did this. These cookies didn't turn out how I was expecting. They are okay, a little to much chocolate for me, and I LOVE chocolate. I probably will not make them again, although they were pretty easy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've taken these to several different functions and even when I left them in the oven a couple minutes too long, they still came out great! I don't bake often (Read: at all) and I can handle these just fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These cookies were my first cookies that I ever made from scratch, they have been a big hit! I've sent them to school with my first grader at his holiday party and I got lots of rave reviews. Before making them I was afraid they would be too chocolatey, but they are perfect. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this recipe tonight and I don't know if it was the cloves or something else but I didn't care for them and neither did my husband. Now I'm stuck with these cookies! Oh well, he can bring them to the office and someone will eat them... item not reviewed by moderator and published
very easy best if under baked by 3 min i would take the clove out item not reviewed by moderator and published
Some of my friends absolutely loved these and others weren't huge fans. The clove really brought on a different taste and next time I think I'll leave the clove out entirely. Also, you really need to watch these when they're baking because they do get really hard and dry out quickly. I took them out of the oven when they were still pretty soft in the middle and they were perfect - even 3 days later! item not reviewed by moderator and published
tast4e like the ones at mi school item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this recipe several times and no one's getting tired of them. They are decadent! I made them once with peanut butter chips and no cloves, but they weren't as absolutely perfect as the original recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies sounded amazing, but after gathering all the vaiours ingredients and slaving over the preparation they quick dried out and cooked very quickly. Could have been great, but simply ended up average at best. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Because I'm not crazy about the flavor of cloves, (but I do love the fragrance) I substituted cinnamon in this recipe. They are easy to prepare & quite delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies are great! So easy to make and absolutely delicious! The only thing I am a just a little unsure about is the spice the recipe calls for...it's a little strong but doesn't take away from the overall yumminess of the cookie! Try this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would make this cookie again, but with less clove or maybe none at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree that if I make this recipe again, I would use 1/8 tsp cloves instead of 1/4 tsp. I found the clove flavor to be a bit overpowering. I wouldn't leave out the cloves completely, unless I were going to add some cocoa powder or something to give the dough more flavor. Even cinnamon might be better than clove, then the cookies would taste like Mexican chocolate. Of course, the cookies were still good despite having a bit too much clove. They would just be even better with less clove. Ina Garten has a great recipe for chocolate white chocolate chip cookes..... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think there is too much clove in this recipe and it gives the cookie a distinct clove taste as opposed to a rich chocolate taste. When I first tried this cookie it didn't taste how I expected, so in the future I will either reduce the amount of clove or leave it out. These cookies were not bad, they just weren't what I had expected. item not reviewed by moderator and published
make soon item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies are just delicious. My friends loved them too, and asked for the recipe. Thanks . I do have a comment about printing out the recipes for all the recipes, why can't we get the photo of the cookies to print with the recipe. I do like to have a photo when I can, as it gives you a visual of the product one is making. Thank You item not reviewed by moderator and published
