RECIPE: Probably the ultimate chocolate cookie

Posted by DanaIN (My Page) on

Just want to share this for the holidays. I think this is an incredible Chocolate, Chocolate Chunk Cookie!

1 1/2 cup butter; softened
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
12 oz. chocolate chips or chunks (semi-sweet)

Cream butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa, soda and salt; add to creamed mixture, fold in chips. Using a 2-inch scoop, place onto ungreased baking sheet (I like to use cookie sheets lined with parchment paper). Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes, until set and tops just begin to crack. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to rack lined with a brown paper bag to cool completely. **Placing a paper bag on rack to absorb grease will help make cookies chewy. Makes about 40 cookies.

*Use a high quality chocolate in these. Store cookies in an air tight container. I store them in the freezer and only take out what I want to serve about 15 minutes before.

RE: RECIPE: Probably the ultimate chocolate cookie

This is one I've posted before that's similar. They're very good.
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 stick butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 TBL milk
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
6 oz semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour & baking soda. Set aside. Using a mixer, cream the butter. Add the vanilla & sugars & beat until fluffy. Beat in the egg. At low speed, beat in the cocoa, then the milk. With a wooden spoon mix in the flour just until blended. Stir in the nuts & chocolate chips.
Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto nonstick or foil-lined cookie sheets. Bake 12-13 minutes. Remove from the oven & cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheets. Cool on a rack.~~

These make an almost black, soft cookie.

Marilyn, those look delicious. Another one to try. Chocolate gives me heartburn or else I'd eat a whole batch. Wish I was 29 again....... well on the other hand maybe it's a good thing I'm not. 8-:

RE: RECIPE: Probably the ultimate chocolate cookie

Marilyn, I made these for Christmas this year and you are right, they are a great chocolate cookie! I used just Hershey's cocoa and some chocolate chips that Hubby bought at Trader Joe's... I don't know if they were high quality chocolate (probably not) but the cookies were delicious nevertheless. A great chocolate flavor. I added chopped walnuts because I like walnuts with chocolate.

Notice it took me a full year to try them after my earlier post above, LOL.
