CHOCOLATE FLEUR de SEL COOKIES IN MY DREAMS [moved from L.A. board]

Jet | Jun 12, 2008 06:00 PM

Dear Chowers, I enjoy good European Chocolate --But am not what you'd call a "chocoholic". HOWEVER, since tasting the rich, buttery, crumbley bitter-sweet "Chocolate Fleur de Sel Cookies" from Cafe' M' de Chaya, I've dreamed of these non-stop, and I beleive I may (unless I hear otherwise) have developed the first to be documented case of
'Chocolate/Fleur de Sel Induced Sleep Apnea'. I've thought about writing into Gourmet Mag. to see if they can secure the recipe. I assume it's a very well-guarded trade secret?
I found no such recipe in Chowhound's list as yet & nothing on Epicurious.com. I did find through GOOGLE, a Pierre Hermes/Dorie Greenspan Recipe, one from Clotilde, and another from J. Vinyards. All contain no eggs, except for one. One calls for using half whole wheat flour, and another uses pastry flour. The ones at M Cafe have the salt sprinkled on top, & they are perfection. The other recipes seem to incorporate the fleur de sel into the dough. Does anyone know or have the Cafe' M. Recipe? If not, can anyone lead me to which of the recipes out there most closely approximates these? Please help.
I'm losing a lot of sleep.........................................................................................JET
