Just a quick recipe for this lovely Tuesday. I actually have quite a large order of baking to complete today. My dormitory is holding a breakfast and I'm baking for it! Definitely looking forward to being able to force all my baking experiments on my entire dorm. *Insert evil laugh*
Nah, I promise to not make anything too risky. There will be lots of chocolate. And butter.
So, I leave you with one of my favorite cookie recipes. I've made these countless times and I always love them. Pop the leftovers in the freezer. Crazy good.
Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1/2 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together the butter and the two sugars. Add the vanilla and then the eggs, one at a time. Add the cocoa powder, mixing until incorporated in. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips gently.
Using a tablespoon, scoop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet. With dampened hands, press the dough down lightly. Bake for exactly 15 minutes. The cookies will appear underdone. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
