Double Chocolate Cookies

This is a Martha Stewart recipes. They are so yummy! The batter tastes just like brownies (my favorite) As long as you don't over bake them they are soft and wonderful.


1 c. flour

½ c baking cocoa powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

½ pound good quality milk chocolate, 4 oz coarsely chopped and 4 oz cut into ¼ inch chunks

½ c (1 stick) unsalted butter

1 ½ c. sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325*. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Melt 4 oz coarsely chopped chocolate with the butter in a double boiler. Let cool slightly.

Mix together chocolate and butter mixture, sugar, eggs, and vanilla on medium speed until combined. Reduce speed to low and slowly incorporate flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chunks (I added white chocolate chips)

Drop dough onto parchment lined baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies are flat and surfaces crack, about 15 minutes (cookies should be soft and almost slightly undercooked)

Let cool on parchment lined wire racks.

Makes 2 ½ dozen
