These were undeniably good and required few ingredients to make. Funny, how pretty simple ingredients can turn into an amazingly beautiful batch of cookies! Crispy, chocolatey, and they melt in your mouth.
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 ounces (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts ...I used walnuts (although macademia or pecan may be a better option)
- Preheat oven to 375C
- Sieve together the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the sugars and butter until the mixture is light and fluffy. Blend in the vanilla and egg. Add the sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture. Gently stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing well apart. Bake for 7 - 11 minutes, or until the dough is set. Do not overbake. Let cool 1 minute before transfering cookies to a cooling rack.
There you go...one of the best cookies ever...
