The owner of a small printing company I worked for, put in a little kitchen and hired a cook to make hot lunches for the employees (with 20-30 employees it was a real luxury). Once a week the cook would come in early and make these Devils Food cookies for us. The aroma drifted down the hallway as we worked. It was a treat we all looked forward to.
