Double Chocolate Chip Cookies


This recipe was tested by one of our Chief Culinary Consultants, and it was dubbed "the best cookie I have ever eaten!"
We are thankful to his sister for sharing the recipe, and we encourage you to try these and see what you think.  If you like chocolate, then you are sure to love these little bites of rich chocolate delight.

Ingredients

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 Tbsp. milk
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
6 oz. (1 cup) semisweet chocolate chips (we used Hershey Dark Chocolate)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour and baking soda and set aside.
Cream butter.  Add vanilla and sugars and beat until fluffy.
Beat in egg.
At low speed, beat in cocoa and milk.
Mix in dry ingredients just until blended.  
Stir in nuts (if using) and chocolate chips.
Drop rounded tablespoonfuls onto nonstick baking sheets.
Bake for 12-13 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool slightly before removing from baking sheet.
Makes 3 dozen.

Here is a cute packaging idea:  Use clear, cellophane bags and red and white stripped twine to wrap up the cookies.  Print a label, cut it out with patterned or straight-edge scissors, and send or give the packaged cookies to someone to brighten their day!




Happy munching!
