Directions

  1. Combine strawberries and 1/3 cup sugar; refrigerate if desired. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar. Cut in butter and 2/3 cup chips until crumbly. Add half-and-half and stir until just moistened.
  2. Divide dough into 8 patties, about 3/4-in. thick. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with coarse sugar and remaining chips.
  3. Bake at 450° for 13 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat whipping cream and confectioners' sugar until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate.
  4. To assemble, split shortcakes in half. Place cake bottoms on dessert plates. Top with about two-thirds of the strawberries, whipped cream and fudge topping. Replace shortcake tops; top with remaining berries, cream and topping. Garnish with chocolate if desired. Yield: 8 servings.

delicious and easy, great with fresh raspberries instead of the strawberries

MY REVIEW

So, I made the best cookies by mistake! While making the recipe, I accidently put in 1 cup of half and half instead of 3/4 cup. The batter came out loose. I figured out what I did, so I gently added about 1 cup of extra flour until batter resembled muffin mix. I used my ice cream scoop and placed them on parchment paper bake sheets, about five inches apart. I'm telling you, sisters in the kitchen-hood, they made the biggest, softest cookies! We used just one for short cake and are haveing one tonight by themselves with a glass of cold milk.
