Filipino Baking Chocolate
Just before the new year I discovered that I could order baking chocolate from Auro. One of the best chocolate makers in the world that happens to be in the Philippines. These are different from Tableya, as with tableya when you bake it, it is still keeps it’s shape. With these, you get nice pools of chocolate. Just what you need.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
Cool on wire rack.
Adobo-ish Salt Dust
Of course we could not have a recipe here without a little bit of flare. Once the cookies are cooling I sprinkled them with some adobo-ish salt dust. This is what you need for that.
2 Dried Bay Leaves
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper Corns
1 Tablespoon Coarse Sea Salt
Put it all in a mortar and pestle and grind until you get a fine powder.
Sprinkle on top each of the cookies, or one at a time if you just want to keep a few plain.
