Dear SOS: During a visit to family in Southern California recently, we had a chance to eat dinner (for the second time) at Andrei’s Restaurant in Irvine. One thing that we’ve had both times we’ve been here is a decadent chocolate tasting, which includes a variety of chocolate desserts (which we share with our whole party). One of the desserts is a chocolate cookie that’s one of the best I’ve ever had. Could you please try to get this recipe?

Dear Druci: Delicately crisp on the outside and chewy tender on the inside, these cookies are bound to please any chocoholic. Andrei’s was happy to share its recipe for its cookies, which we’ve adapted below.
