C is for cookie

I actually think these are similar to the last cookies that were so splendiferous, but these spread out all nice and pretty.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces milk chocolate (4 ounces coarsely chopped, 4 ounces cut into 1/4 inch chunks)
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 325. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Melt coarsely chopped chocolate with the butter in a small heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water (that or microwave it!).

2. Transfer chocolate mixture to the bwol of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla; mix on medium speed until combined. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chunks.

3. Scoop batter using a 1 1/2 -inch ice cream scoop; place 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets (just grease them!!!). Bake until cookies are flat and surfaces begin to crack, about 15 mins. Transfer on parchment to wire rack. Let cool 5 mins.

What's with the parchment?!? Yeah so anyway... good cookies! They spread a lot too... and they don't look done but they are done. Also, I just used mini kisses for the 1/4 chunks and chocolate chips for the chunky ones.

=========================

So anyway, back to studying Anatomy and Physiology! After taking notes for every single chapter but Chapter 1, I am reverting to typing my notes because it's faster! I didn't get much homework done this morning because Kait came for lunch and then we went to Chester just for fun.

Bye!!!
