Author's Notes

For the best results, measure your flour by weight instead of volume.

The balls of dough may be frozen for up to one month before baking. Spread the formed dough balls in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place the sheet in the freezer. When frozen, transfer them to an airtight plastic bag. Thaw them overnight on trays in the refrigerator before proceeding with the recipe.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line three large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Step 2
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the Unbleached All Purpose Flour (2 1/2 cups) , Baking Soda (1 tsp) , and Salt (1/4 tsp) .
Step 3
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), beat the Unsalted Butter (1 cup) , Brown Sugar (2 cups) , Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (2/3 cup) , 2 tsp of Orange (1) , and Pure Vanilla Extract (1 tsp) on medium speed until well combined, for about 4 minutes.
Step 4
Add the Large Eggs (3) one at a time, beating briefly between additions. Add the Bittersweet Chocolate (1 3/4 cups) and mix until blended, about 1 minute.
Step 5
Add the dry ingredients and mix at low speed until almost completely blended about 1 minute. Add the Bittersweet Chocolate (1 cup) and mix by hand until well incorporated.
Step 6
Shape the dough into 1-1/4-inch balls with a small ice-cream scoop or two tablespoons. A 1 1/2 Tbsp capacity cookie scoop works well here.
Step 7
Pour Granulated Sugar (1/3 cup) into a shallow dish. Dip the top of each ball in the sugar and set the ball sugar side up about 1-1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.
Step 8
Bake one sheet at a time until the cookies are puffed and cracked on top, 11 to 12 minutes.
Step 9
Let the cookies cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
