Lately my favorirte thing to do before bed time is curl up and catch up on  my netflix queue with a glass of milk and a cookie,. I am currently rotating between scrubs, psych, criminal minds and keeping up appearances. I know - a very odd combo, but there is something about watching (or in my case re-watching) old episodes of these shows that helps me relax - maybe it is the fact that I already know how it ends.

Anyhou - that has been my nightly unwind routine. My current go to cookies are these chocolate chocolate chip cookies - they are so good. This recipe makes about 24 cookies, so I make a large batch on sunday night - the remainder goes into a zip lock bag and into the fridge. I usually heat it up for 15 to 20 seconds before enjoying.

Just FYI - I like my cookies a bit crunchy because it makes for better dunking  into milk, so bake for 7 to 10 minutes less that stated if you prefer softer cookies.

What you need

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

How to

Preheat the oven to 325 F. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda.

In another bowl, whisk together the butter and sugar until you have a smooth consistency and there are no lumps.  Stir in the eggs (one at a time) and vanilla extract until combined. Using a wooden spoon or a spatula, stir in the flour mixture. The dough may be crumbly but you can also bring it together with your hands. Stir in the chocolate chips till evenly distributed. 

Using a ice cream scoop or tablespoon to scoop dough onto baking tray (a few inches apart).  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes (bake for 12 to 15 minutes, if you prefer a soft chewy cookie).

Remove and let cool slightly before eating.
