Sometimes you just need a homemade chocolate cookie, perfect for those wicked chocolate cravings that I know absolutely nothing about.
Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies
(Original recipe: Cafe Delites)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, white sugar, butter and vegetable oil. Beat in egg and vanilla until fully incorporated.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Fold dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until a dough forms; do not over beat. Fold in the chocolate chips. Scoop out 1-2 tablespoonful of dough with a cookie scoop and place onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Press them down as thick or thin as you want your cookies to come out.
Bake for 12 minutes. The cookies will come out soft from the oven but will harden up as
they cool. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
