Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
I recently realized that in all my attempts to impress my readers with fancier recipes I’ve neglected to include ANY cookies. How?? Why?! When anyone says “housewife” doesn’t your brain immediately jump to a woman with one of those cute little half aprons over her pretty dress pulling a freshly baked tray of cookies out of the oven? (brief digression: Why would they only wear half an apron? Did they not spill on their tops?) Anyway, I decided it was about time to make a batch of my own for the blog, with a festive twist of course.
Also, I am fully aware that the first chocolate chip cookies are not native to the world’s retro years, however there are hundreds of recipes for them that surfaced in the 50s and 60s. I have combined several (from Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, and Nestle Toll House) to create this supercookie.
– 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
– 2 eggs
– 2 tsp vanilla extract
– 2 cups all purpose flower
– 2/3 cup cocoa powder
– 3/4 tsp baking soda
– pinch of salt
– 2/3 cup chopped 83% dark chocolate
– 2/3 cup chopped 60% chocolate
– 2/3 chocolate chips (any % you’d like)
Preheat oven to 360 degrees. In a bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until fluffy. In a separate bowl combine cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir into sugar mixture until combined. Drop rounded teaspoons onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake 9-12 minutes or until slightly firm to the touch. Cool slightly before cooling completely on wire racks. Seriously. These bad boys are HOT.
