These are probably some of my favorite cookies. =)
Double Chocolate Cookies
1 1/4 cups butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 3/4 cup flour
3/4 + 2 T. cocoa
3/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups vanilla chips
Lightly cream butter and sugars in a large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla; mix until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture along with the chips. Drop onto greased cookie sheets; bake at 375 for 10 minutes or until slightly firm. Don’t overbake! Yield: 50 cookies
Notes: We usually don’t make these just like the recipe – here’s some yummy variations:
- Omit white chips. Add all chocolate chips.
- Substitute for the white chips: 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows and 3/4 cup chopped pecans
- Add 1/4 cup instant coffee granules to the creamed mixture.
- Whatever sounds good to you!
