Q&A: What is a good recipe for chewy chocolate cookies?

Question by Jasmine: What is a good recipe for chewy chocolate cookies?
Whenever I make chocolate cookies, they always turn out cake-y. I want a cookie that is chewy and thick. Does anyone have a good recipe?

Just plain chocolate cookies, not chocolate chip ones.

Chewy chocolate crackle cookies

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 large egg, beaten lightly
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar plus additional for dusting hands

In a bowl (preferably metal) stir together flour, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt and, using finger, blend in butter. Stir in egg until mixture is blended. Spread dough in a thin layer in bowl and freeze 10 minutes, or until firm.

Preheat oven to 400°. and lightly grease 2 baking sheets.

Spoon level teaspoons of dough onto a sheet of wax paper. Put 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar in a small bowl and dust hands with additional. Roll each piece of dough into a ball and then in confectioners’ sugar in bowl. Arrange balls 2 inches apart on baking sheets and bake in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching sheets halfway through baking time, 8 to 10 minutes, or until cookies are just set. Cool cookies on racks.

    Best Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    1 egg
    1 egg yolk
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

    Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

    In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.

    Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
