|Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies WITH nuts. |
You can add some nuts to the batter after you've cooked a few dozen plain.
Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/4 cup soft butter or margarine
1 1/2- 2 cups sugar (yikes! I have used 1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 white)
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa (if your cocoa is really dark, use a little less)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips... try different varieties
3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. Add vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and blend into the creamed mixture. (If you have a mixer, just blop everything on top of creamed mixture and let 'er fly!)
Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.
BAKE 350F for 8-9 minutes. If you over cook your cookies, they are hard and don't live up to their name. They will look slightly puffy and start cracking and are done.
Cool on racks and eat. Great with ice cream, etc too.
