Milk Chocolate Chip + Chocolate Cookie
I have been wanting to make this cookie for a long time ever since seeing this post on Heart of Light.
The actual recipe is from Martha Stewart's Cookies.
From the Heart of Light blog:
Milk Chocolate Cookies from Martha Stewart's Cookies
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
8 ounces good quality milk chocolate (half coarsely chopped for melted, half cut into 1/4" chunks)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
** Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside. ** Melt the coarsely chopped chocolate with the butter and then allow it to cool. (You can either use a double boiler for this, or you can simply use the microwave, if you're lucky enough to have a kitchen large enough to accommodate one, unlike me.) ** Beat the sugar, eggs and vanilla in the mixer. Pour in the melted chocolate, then fold in the flour until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chunks. ** Set the oven to preheat to 325 degrees. Chill the dough for about half an hour (Martha doesn't mention this, but I found it really helpful) and then use a 1 1/2 inch ice cream scoop (or a large spoon) to drop dough onto parchment or Silpat lined baking sheets. Bake 15 minutes. Cookies will still be soft. Makes about 3 dozen.
Just FYI Sur La Table has the best cookie sheets.
I don't need to grease anything, or buy a Silpat, which can be around $40.
Cookies fall right off.
They came out pretty great....
Can't wait to gift these with my new ribbon collection I got today from Michaels.
I love ribbons.
