Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie

In all the excitement today I forgot a couple of things, the biggy was cookies for the lunches this week. Damn...but life goes on when you have a full pantry. Pinched for time, make it a "pan cookie" and move on. Thank gawd for Costco and their 5 lb bags of chips as I rarely am out.

The recipe:
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 3/4 c brown sugar
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1 t vanilla extract (the real deal not imitation)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t soda
  • 2 C flour
  • 1/2 C cocoa
  • 2 1/2 C Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a 9 X 13 pan.

Cream sugars and room temperature butter with the vanilla. Beat until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time.

Sift together the salt, soda, flour and cocoa. Add slowly to butter mixture, beating well to incorporate. Fold in the Chocolate chips. Lightly spread the dough into the prepared pan. Bake 22-25 minutes until edges are just starting to look dry. Cool on rack 10 minutes. Score the cookies and allow to remain in the pan until cool to room temp. At that point you can move to a cookie jar.

I used the Nestle's Semi-sweet chips. The cocoa is the every faithful Hershey brand.

If you have the time and patience you can bake on an ungreased cookie sheet using about 1 heaping tablespoon per cookie. Bake 8-10 minutes until set. I do the traditional cookie rarely as I hate cleaning up baking sheets.
