Well, 'someone' requested me to bake him cookies today. I have tons of chocolate chip cookies recipes. I picked this one for no particular reason. May be because I am chocoholic??? It turned out great, but not the best that I ever had. If you cook it in a lesser amount of time...it'll be so soft and chewy...taste just like brownies.... But if you like it to be more crispy, increase the cooking time.
INGREDIENTS: 1 cup unsalted butter 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 2 tsp vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2/3 cup cocoa powder 3/4 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
METHODS: -Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. -Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla and eggs. -Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Stir into the butter mixture until well blended. -Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts. -Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets. -Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. -Cool.
Everytime I bake a marble cake, it always remind me of my late mother-in-law. Marble cake was the first 'gift' she gave to me on our first meeting. One whole cake, in a beautiful box, tied with a ribbon. Anyway, let's not get into the details....let's continue with the recipe. I got this recipe a few years back. My previous marble cake recipe used cocoa powder, but this one uses cooking chocolate. It taste far better (make sure u used a high quality chocolate). So, i ditched the previous recipe and sticking to this. The texture is quite moist making it more YUMMY....
