Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This is a favorite cookie recipe around here. It makes a lot of cookies too, about 8 dozen 2 inch cookies. Its a simple recipe that found in a Mennonite cookbook and tweaked a bit to our taste. I have seen this recipe out and about on the internet made with whole wheat flour, so if you prefer, you can use whole wheat. I was going to include pictures of these but I am not sure there are any left!  So this picture is not of my cookies, but they look just about exactly like the picture. 

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
Cream together.

4 eggs
Add and beat well.

4 cup flour
1 cup cocoa
2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 – 12 oz bag mini-chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and mix well. Add flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda, mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 9 minutes. Don’t over-bake!  They should still be a little soft in the centers when they come out of the oven. This is really important for these cookies, because they will get hard as rocks if you over bake the. Delicious, chocolate rocks, but kind of hard.

    This is perfect with a glass of hot milk. Thanks for sharing. My hubby will surely ask for more of this.

    This is so chocolaty. This are perfect my kids’ daily snacks. I think I should add more chocolate chips to make it yummier.

    Forget it. I should read better.

    I will definitely be making some of these. How many cookies does the full recipe yield? I don’t mind a little extra…hehe.

    …so if they turn out hard, they’d be good for dunkin’? Like biscotti, I’m guessing~

    The cookies freeze very well. I have a few dozen in the frig right now! Shhh! Don’t tell! lol And of course, you can halve the recipe.

    These look delicious! Do you think this recipe could be halved? Or could the dough, or even the cookies, freeze?
