Smitten Kitchen website for a week or more and I had to wait to get my dutch process cocoa from Amazon so I finally got a chance over the weekend to make these cookies. Why grocery stores don't stock dutch cocoa I will never know. I'm sure I could have found it somewhere but it's easier to wait for the UPS person.
Anyway, they were worth the wait. I had a little trouble with the recipe and made a few changes to the original recipe. I had to add an extra egg yolk and when that didn't make the dough come together I added two more tablespoons of butter and beat the heck out of it. That did the trick. I was worried the texture wouldn't be sandy and sable like but they came out just fine.
