Double Chocolate Cookies
2 1/4 cups of AP Flour
2/3 cup of baking cocoa
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of butter at room temperature
3/4 cup of sugar
2/3 cup of brown sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 package of white chocolate chips
It is important to find white chocolate chips not white baking chips which are not chocolate at all. And yes I know white chocolate isn't really chocolate either but lets not get into that.
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside. Cream together butter, sugars and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time. Add the flour mixture gradually in 3 parts. Once combined stir in the white chocolate chips. You can form these into golf ball size balls or rounded teaspoons depending on what size of cookies you are looking for and bigger is better in my book. Place on a ungreased baking sheet about an inch or so apart.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes then move them to a cooling rack and while they are still slightly warm move them to your storage container. They will stay nice and soft for you this way.
