On the weekends, especially during the winter, I tend to get into a bit of a baking mood. Now, because I don't consider myself much of a baker, the things I make are usually very simple, like cookies and brownies. Lately, I've been on a cookie binge. So last weekend, when I was trying to think of something yummy to make, I came across this recipe for Double Chocolate Chip Cookies from Martha Stewart. Normally, I am not one to try a Martha recipe as I've had so many of them not turn out right. But of course, how can you go wrong with a cookie recipe, right? And especially one for chocolate CHOCOLATE chip cookies!
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ever so slightly adapted from Martha Stewart
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream the butter and sugars int a large bowl with an electric mixer (I used my standing mixer) on high speed. Lower to medium speed and add the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. On low speed, add the dry mixture to the butter mixture. Beat until fully incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Form dough into approximately 1 1/2-inch balls. Place on baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake until the centers are just set, about 10-12 minutes. Let cook on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
