Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies for my birthday party last summer, when I hadn’t really mastered cooking, but was a great baker (I’m still trying to remember the hybrid oreo sugar cookie recipe I mastered when I was eleven). This isn’t my recipe — I found it on — but it is my photograph. These cookies are delicious. Very thin and crispy, and not too sweet but very rich. If you’re a serious chocolate person, give these a try.

One quick note: Hardly any single person owns one of those big electronic mixers. That can make baking really difficult, since it’s nearly impossible to cream butter and sugar together with a spoon. My solution: wash your hands really, really well, and dig them right in there. A minute or two of kneading the sugar/butter mixture with your fingers will bind it perfectly. And then don’t tell anyone that’s how you did it!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set. Cool for one minute on the cookie sheets before removing to cool completely.

    I agree with your point about not owning a stand-mixer as a single person.  Every time I see them, I want one.  But it hardly made sense for me to make such a purchase when I was only cooking for me.

    This is exactly why I hardly make recipes by Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network).  A lot of what she does involves the stand-mixer, which is disappointing because I love watching her show and I want to try her recipes…  I just don’t have the proper equipment to do so!

    Oh weird… somehow I never saw this comment.  I actually meant that single people don’t own them because most people get them as wedding gifts!  Whoops! :-)

    I just made my own variation of these.  I didn’t have any chocolate chips on hand, so I put in some oats instead.  They turned out very yummy–definitely eating these with a tall glass of cold milk!!  And I had to bake them for 12-13 minutes, too.
