These are pretty and very tasty. They’re easy and just a touch above regular chocolate chip cookies.
Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp butter
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- dash of salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds or peanuts), chopped
mixing bowl and cookie sheet
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well. Sift together salt, soda, flour and cocoa, then add to butter mixture, blending well. Add nuts and chocolate chips. Spoon onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool on cooling rack.
Here’s the first picture from the new camera:
This is without any real effort, just set it for the food application and snapped. I did have to compress it because I had it on the highest quality setting, so the file size was huge. It lost a bit in the compression. But I am pleased so far. I needed something I didn’t have to fuss with and this seems to fit the bill. I’m going to a holiday light show tomorrow night, I’ll give it a real test there.
I can’t wait to have time to really play with it and see what it can do.
