Double Chocolate Cookies

I sent Joe to work with these this week and he reported that they were a big hit with people coming back to his office for seconds and thirds, or maybe he ate them all?  Either way, these disappeared within a day and I’d recommend this recipe to any chocolate lovers out there.  Maybe add in some coconut flakes or nuts if you’re so inclined!

Unlike most cookie dough recipes, these start with cold butter and  their double chocolate name is from the cocoa powder and chocolate chips.  Don’t over bake, you want them to be a little soft when you pull them out of the oven.  IMG_5865What to buy:

  • 1/2 cup, 1 stick unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1  eggs
  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

What to do:

  • preheat the oven to 350
  • line baking sheets with parchment paper
  • in the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar
  • beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes
  • blend in the egg
  • mix in the cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder until well blended
  • fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula
  • roll dough into balls and flatten just slightly into a disc
  • place on baking sheets, a few inches apart and bake 8-10 minutes
