Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 1-1/2 bars (150 g) good-quality bittersweet chocolate (such as Lindt)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Method

Chop 1 bar (100 g) of the chocolate. In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt chopped chocolate; let cool to room temperature.

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until light; beat in cornstarch and salt. Stir in melted chocolate until smooth. Stir in flour to make smooth dough.

Divide dough in half; form each into 12-inch (30 cm) log. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Cut remaining chocolate into generous 1/4-inch (5 mm) pieces.

Slice each log into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Top each with piece of chocolate.

Bake in 325°F (160°C) oven until firm, about 16 minutes. Let cool on pans for 10 minutes; transfer to racks and let cool completely.
