Double Chocolate Cookies

Ingredients & Directions

1 and ½ cups + 1 Tablespoon (198g) all-purpose flour
¼ cup (21g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature.
¾ cup (150g) packed light brown sugar (or dark brown)
¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
1 egg, at room temperature*
1 Tablespoon (15ml) milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup (180g) semi-sweet chocolate chips (plus a few extra for after baking)

 

Toss the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
Using a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on high speed until creamy, about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl as needed. Switch the mixer to medium speed and beat in the brown sugar and granulated sugar until combined. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla extract, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.  Turn the mixer off and pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Turn the mixer on low and slowly beat until a very soft dough is formed. On low speed, beat in the chocolate chips. The dough will be sticky.

Cover the dough tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour (and up to 4-5 days– make sure you let the cookie dough sit out at room temperature for about 45 minutes before baking if chilling for more than 1 day.). Chilling is mandatory.

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

Scoop 1.5 Tablespoons of dough and mold into a ball, as pictured above. Place 9 balls onto each baking sheet. Bake each batch for 10-11 minutes. The cookies may have only spread slightly, that is ok. Simply press down on the warm cookies to slightly flatten and form crinkles. Stick a few chocolate chips into the tops of the warm cookies (as explained in the post) – that’s optional and only for looks.

Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days. Cookies may be frozen for up to 2 months. Cookie dough may be frozen up to 2 months – thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Cookie dough balls may be frozen up to 2 months. Bake for 1-2 extra minutes (do not thaw).
