Chocolate – Chocolate Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate chip cookies What’s more wonderful than a chocolate chop cookie?

A double chocolate chip cookie of course!

My sister Sandy made these as part of her Christmas baking this year and shared some with me. (You’d think she liked me or something!)

You really don’t want to know how many I ate. To be honest – I think I lost count. But at least I didn’t hide them from the children! 🙂

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup baking cocoa
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup pecans or walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips

Combine flour and baking soda and set aside.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add vanilla. Beat in the egg.

At low speed beat in cocoa followed by the milk.

Carefully stir in the dry ingredients with a spoon until just blended. Stir in the chips and nuts.

Drop by rounded teaspoonful on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before removing to wire racks.
