Hey all you cool cats and kittens! I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy during this extraordinary time.
My husband and I haven’t been feeling great and miss our friends and families terribly, but we’re lucky enough to both be able to work from home (for now) so we’re doing OK financially and hanging in there.
Although we’ve both been working marathon 15 hour days, I have found some time here and there to do some simple cooking and baking. These chewy chocolate chip cookies were the answer to an after work craving last week, and we loved them so much I had to share the recipe with you all.
They remind me a little of cake mix cookies – soft and chewy, and very sweet!
- 1 stick plus 2 Tbsp salted butter (10 Tbsp) softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg, large
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup baking chips – I used half white chocolate half semi-sweet
Preheat oven to 350. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. In a separate bowl, stir together dry ingredients. Gradually blend into butter mixture. Stir in baking chips. Using a cookie scoop, drop onto baking sheet lined with parchment or a silpat. Bake 8-9 minutes. Cookies will be very soft, and will solidfy when cooled. Do not overbake.
