Do you ever get a craving for something? And just really want it? Today?
I love brownies but I really like the convenience of a cookie. Ok, I'll be honest, I feel guilty when I take 2 brownies and scarf them down with a glass of milk. But with cookies, I can eat 2 or 3 and I'm ok. Not so much guilt. And it's also less noticeable when I go back and sneak another one.
I had pinned these cookies a while back from Haniela's. They just looked so good. I didn't have all the ingredients so I adapted to what I did have. These cookies were perfect for that brownie fix. They stay soft and moist. And the deep, rich chocolate flavor is to die for.
adapted from Haniela's
7 tablespoons butter
10 tablespoons cocoa, divided
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Melt butter in small saucepan on stove. Whisk in 6 tablespoons of cocoa (reserving the rest) until well combined and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool.
In small bowl combine flour, remaining 4 tablespoons cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir just to blend. Set aside.
In mixing bowl, combine, cocoa/butter mixture, sugar and eggs. Slowly add in flour mixture. Make sure to combine well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Refrigerate dough for a minimum of 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before removing to cooling racks.
