What a whopper: Maida Heatter has always believed in the power of cookies, and now the restaurant world is catching on, notes the September issue of Food & Wine.

The magazine salutes Heatter and her recipe for Chocolate Whoppers, which begat similar bakery wonders all over the country by such names as Black Gold (Upper Crust), Triple Chocolate Cookies (Schlotzsky's) and Whopper (Sweetish Hill).

The best chocolate cookie recipe in the world, it is pure decadence and contains only 1/4 cup flour. The rest is chocolate and nuts.
