Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
yields:: 3 dozen cookies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup milk-chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Cream the butter and sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until combined. On medium speed and add the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. On stir or low speed, add the dry mixture to the butter mixture. Beat until just fully incorporated. Do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
2. Form the dough into approximately 1 1/2-inch balls or use a cookie scoop. Place on parchment lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
3. Bake until the centers are just set, about 10-12 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks.
