Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

March 10, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post

Sometimes a girl just needs some chocolate. I don’t bake much anymore. My waist line can’t afford it. Well it could if I went to the gym, but its been months since I set foot in the gym so in the meantime cookies are not my friend. Oh but they are. These chocolate cookies are so good! :-)

I like that it uses cocoa powder which I always have on hand, and I’m guaranteed to have a at least a few chips/chunks of chocolate to toss in as well. So this is a fabulous go-to late night cook recipe, especially cause its easily halved in case you find yourself with only one egg! Personally, I opt for dark chocolate whenever I can so I use Dark Cocoa powder in this recipe and dark chocolate chips. They make a fabulously rich and chocolatey cookie to satisfy your chocolate craving.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yields: 3 dozen cookies

1 cup all-purpose flour*
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 ounces semisweet chocolate (chips or chunks)
1 stick (8 Tbsp) unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325°F. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Melt half the chocolate (4 oz) with the butter in a small heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.

Transfer melted chocolate to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla; mix on medium speed until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low while gradually adding flour mixture until combined. Fold in remaining chocolate chips or chunks.

Scoop batter using a 1 1/2-inch scoop; place 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until cookies are flat and surfaces begin to crack, about 15 minutes. Cookies will still be a little soft but will set after removing from oven. Transfer to wire racks and let cool 5 minutes.

* I have successfully made this recipe using all Wheat Pastry Flour. It yields a chewier cookie, but I certainly don’t mind for the extra benefit of using wheat flour!

I love this recipe. I have left over whole wheat pastry flour from making banana bread. I love how much more tender it make baked goods! Everyone thought I had some ‘secret’ to the bread. Nope. Just really ripened bananas and the pastry flour. (I used my Le Cordon Blue school cook book.)

I want to thank you for passing this along! This recipe looks VERY good.
