Double Chocolate Cookies

It's a snow day!  I just love snow days!  I'm home from work, my kids are home from school, and my husband's home too :)  Perfect occasion to bake up something yummy and fun (and maybe even make a card or two :) )

We all just love these cookies-they're soft with somewhat of a cake-like texture, and extra chocolatey:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup salted butter, softenened
3 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and cocoa powder.  Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, blend brown and white sugars and butter with an electric mixer at medium speed to form a grainy paste.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Add the flour mixture and chocolate chips.  Blend at low speed just until combined.  Do not overmix.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, 1-1/2 inches apart.  Bake for 18-22 minutes.  Immediately transfer cookies to a cool surface.
