Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

My husband is not a fan of cookies. He usually won't even eat the cookies I make (not because they are yucky- I promise but probably because I always make peanut butter cookies and he hates peanut butter. More for me I guess =) ). These on the other hand... GOBBLE gobble GoBbLe! We stop at cookie corner here and there when we at at the mall or whatever and he always gets a couple of the double chocolate cookies with walnuts so I figured that I could make them for him, and mine were better! He said so himself!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional) *I used 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup pecans

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl stir together flour, salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl stir together butter, both sugars, eggs, vanilla and cocoa. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture and mix until combined. Stir chocolate chips and walnuts, if using, and stir to distribute evenly.
For cookies: Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets and bake about 10 minutes. Cool on a baking rack

Omigosh, I MISS cookie corner! We have Mrs. Fields over here, but she cannot compare to Cookie Corner. I remember in Mililani, always passing by and my mom would buy us the red cups with the little cookies in it. YUM!

Bless the hearts of food network. I love getting recipes from there, the high rated ones mostly. Good job on beating cookie corner, even though I love LOVE that corner. Woohoo!
