Quixotic Cookies

For many years now I have been searching for a decent recipe for tripple chocolate cookies. Finding a decent recipe has been very difficult, and many that claim to be wonderful, are infact not. However, with the aquisition of the cook book: "Complete Comfort Food" - Bridgit Jones (ISBN: 9781840384703) I have finall found a recipe I think I can call "PERFECT!". Based on how hard it was for me to find it, I include it here anyone else on the quest for the perfect cookie!
