Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
9 Tablespoons room temperature butter
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
2/3 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 extra large egg or 2 small eggs
1 2/3 Cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips and
2/3 cups white chocolate chips
2/3 cups walnuts or pecans if desired
Heat oven to 350. In large mixing bowl combine butter and both sugars. Beat with wooden spoon or mixer until the mixture is soft and fluffy. Set aside. In a small bowl, break the egg and mix with a fork. Add egg to the mixing bowl.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the bowl. Mix until just combined. Add all the chocolate chips and mix until thoroughly combined.
Roll by tablespoons into balls and place on baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for about 15 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 24 cookies.
That's all there is to it. My only trouble is remembering to set the butter out to soften- happens every time! Enjoy!
