Can you say YUM!?! These cookies are so moist, fudgy and cakelike. I got the recipe from Annie's Eats, if you haven't checked out this site you have got to (makes mine look like child's play). She has some fabulous recipes out there and I can't wait to try them all. I of course slightly modified the recipe so if you want the original plate size cookies check out her site.
Double Chocolate Cookies
2 cubes of butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder (I used regular)
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Cream butter and sugar. Mix in eggs and vanilla.
3. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder. This batter is really thick and sticky, I recommend using a stand mixer (I used cookie paddles).
4. Stir in chocolate chips.
5. Using a cookie scoop (trust me it will make your life sooo much easier!) scoop tablespoon size balls onto cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool slightly before transferring to cooling rack.
*makes 3 1/2 dozen medium sized cookies
