I'm obsessed: Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe?

The Dairy Queen | Jan 16, 2009 03:46 AM

Okay, so, I keep reading about these chocolate chunk cookies from Baby Boomers Cafe in Des Moines, IA that the Obamas love so much. Here's a photo: http://www.babyboomerscookie.com/
I was hoping to bake some for my little inaugural celebration this weekend.

Apparently, they are baked from a recipe that was handed down from one of the owners' great-grandmother, according to this article http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/...
and it has a "secret ingredient"-- "something they use at the diner that they won't reveal."

In this article, he says that it's his grandmother's recipe with a few variations, like using chunks of chocolate instead of chips. http://www.siouxcityjournal.com/artic...

Of course, if it's a SECRET, I HAVE TO KNOW.

In this article, they say it's using "chunks" of chocolate, instead of "chips", but, in complete paranoia, I just believe there must be something more. http://www.kcci.com/politics/18052948...

In this article they say "But there's something else, a taste different from any store-bought cookie. Almond paste? More subtle than that. Vanilla extract? Nope."

"They're not telling. Their only hint for the secret ingredient: It's used on one other menu item."

What do YOU think the secret could be?

Do you have a delicious, even "secret", recipe for chocolate chunk cookies to share?
