My daughter was the first one to chime in with "make chocolate chip cookies!". Since he was happy with her choice, I dug out a favorite cookie cookbook of mine, The Cookie Bible, and found a recipe called "Design Your Own Chocolate Cookies". It's a recipe for your basic chocolate cookie dough and then you choose whichever extras that you would like to add into it. In this case, I added semi-sweet chocolate chips.
The cookies turned out great--they're slightly crispy on the outside, yet chewy in the middle. The chocolate chips stayed semi-soft, too, making them even more delectable! MMMM!!!
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 C. butter, softened --I used 1/2 C. butter
& 1/2 C. of butter-flavored Crisco
1 C. sugar
3/4 C. packed light brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2 C. all-purpose flour
1/2 C. Hershey's cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
12 oz. of choc. chips
Heat oven to 375*
Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and salt in a lg. bowl until creamy. Add eggs; beat well.
Stir together flour, cocoa and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. (it took my cookies about 8 1/2 minutes)
Cool slightly; remove from cookies sheet to wire rack. Cool completely---can you really resist eating these cookies while they are warm?!?
We loved these cookies so much that I've decided to submit them for a BookMarked Recipe. My family has been begging me to make them more of these! This is a definite keeper!
