Cookies make a great accompaniment to afternoon tea, especially when they are my favorite Neiman Marcus cookies. The key to making them really special is in the chocolate chips. Be sure to use good chocolate, and put two different kinds in; this gives more depth of taste. These have both bittersweet chocolate and milk chocolate. I think these cookies are usually made with semisweet chocolate chips instead of the dark bittersweet chocolate, but I really like them better this way. The cookies have a richer taste as opposed to being overly sweet as is often the case.
