I like drop cookies...a lot.
I mean don't get me wrong...I love decorating...but there's something in the oh so instant gratification of just dropping dough on the cookie sheet and puting it in the oven.....
And then doin' NOTHING with it.
Ahhhhhh.....the simple life.
Ok so I couldn't leave them COMPLETELY alone....just a few...little eyeballs....
Anyway, these cookies are AMAZING! Like a delicious brownie. I kid you not. The perfect texture, the perfect size, not cakey, not too dense, not too chewy...soft and light.... DELICIOUS. And so easy to make!!!
Double Chocolate Cookies
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 c dark brown sugar
1/4 c white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
10 oz all purpose flour
1 oz Special Dark cocoa powder
1 little packet of Starbucks VIA Instant coffee
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350
Mix your wet ingredients (through vanilla) together in a stand mixer with a paddle till well combined and fluffy.
Sift your dry ingredients together in a separate bowl (I just give them a good mix with a whisk)
Then add your dry to your wet in your mixer. Mix until well combined. Add chocolate chips. Mix till well combined.
On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, drop spoon sized balls of dough. I use a cookie scoop...Don't know what size it is...like not a melon baller but not an ice scream scoop or anythng..1.5 inch? 2 inch? I dunno...Sorry can't be more specific there.
Go ahead and place them in your oven and cook for 8-9 minutes. When you take them out they wont seem done, but don't fret. Set them aside and they will set through. Don't cook them any longer than 10 minutes or you wont get a soft brownie like cookie.
And that's all there is. Eat em!!
Ya know this would be really good with walnuts too....
