Double Chocolate Cookies - A Recipe

Today was my regular Wednesday off. At 7 AM, the outside temp was -5 degrees so I decided it would be a good day to stay indoors for knitting, movie watching and cookie baking. Last week I found a recipe for Double Chocolate Cookies on the back of a bag of Crystal Sugar and decided to try that out today. I think these cookies turned out pretty darn good and if you're interested in trying out this recipe for yourself or your favorite "test subjects," I've written it down below.


1-1/4 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
(obviously I used white chocolate chips)

Cream sugar and butter; beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in flour, cocoa and baking soda on low speed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.

Yield: 3 dozen cookies

....I'm drooling too......and there's no chocolate around. I wish I could just pluck one (or 5) of these off the screen. I think I'll give this recipe a try....

More drool.... I'm not much of a baker, do you deliver?

Very cruel post for someone who is trying to cut out all eating between meals but is really very hungry right now at 3:31. Obviously, my apple slices with peanut butter did NOT do the trick for lunch.

(Geesh, I can almost smell them!)

P.S. You were colder than us this morn. We had a low of 0°.

YUM--good they have not perfected the smell feature on the Internet as yet.

You mean I have to make my own cookies?

Hi Lynne,
Even the unbaked cookie dough was good!

Hi Kelly,
I really not a chocoholic, but this recipe will definitely satisfy any chocolate cravings you have!

Hi Gaelyn,
If it's above 65 degrees and sunny where you are right now, I would definitely consider personal delivery! (but you might be stuck with me then for a few weeks until it warms up in Minnesota....)

Sorry Mama Pea, didn't mean to torture you. I made them early in the day so I could count them as late breakfast food instead of a between meal snack!

You got that right Donna because they really did smell delicious (there's no better smell on a cold, winter day)

Hi Mom,
I'll be sure to save some cookies from the next batch for you and Dad.

Hi Ray,
On the way to my mom & dad's, do you want me to drop some cookies off at your place too?
