Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips or Peanut Butter Chips  

I made these cookies today.  For the cocoa I used some of the Valrhona 100% cacao.  This cocoa powder is said to be one of the best brands.  This is the first I have used the package we bought in Minneapolis this winter in cookies.  I wanted to know if we could tell the difference and if it was by chance worth the extra money. 

It is a bit different in taste from the other cocoas I have used.  It is certainly good.  I am not sure my taste buds can tell the difference in a blind test.  My palate my not be refined enough to warrant the extra cost of this cocoa but I will buy it again.  It is not a must to have product. But nice to have in the cabinet.
