...double chocolate cookies...

I've gotten the baking hunch again and made these over the weekend.  Our cookie jar was once full and now it's almost empty.  As most cookies are, these were best warm and straight out of the oven.  What I love about them is that I had all the items in my pantry and there was no need to go get 5 fancy things.

I was able to make them real fast and they only cooked for 8-10 minutes.  I may be eating one now.

I found the recipe thanks to All Recipes.com and went with it thanks to the raving reviews.  As I started making these I wondered how good they would turn out.  Why hadn't I just looked through my amazing library of cookbooks?  I was glad they turned out to be a winner eaten alone, with a glass of milk, or atop some vanilla ice cream.  I've tried all 3 ways.

Ingredients You'll Need:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 t. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. In a mixer beat the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy.  In a separate bowl combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.  Stir into the butter mixture until well blended.  Mix in the chips and walnuts.

3. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes until just set.  Cool on a cookie rack and enjoy!  Store in an airtight container for the longest shelf life, although I don't think these will be around too long.
