Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Comfort food...that's what my son was in need of tonight. He's been trying to fight off a cold for the last week but it finally got the better of him tonight. His request tonight after dinner..."Mom, can you make something "normal" for dessert tonight, PLEASE? How could anyone resist this request?

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 eggs
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!

Hi Ruth :)

I'm like you...I'm trying to find some "favorites" out there, too. This cookie recipe is really good! I have tried a lot of choc. chip recipes that weren't that good but this one, I think it's the chocolate dough that helps to make it really good. If you make them, let me know what you think!

Thanks for accepting me into Bookmarked Recipes!
