Chocolate Quickies

This recipe comes from one of my cookbooks called “Death By Chocolate Cookies” by Marcel Desaulniers.  The cookies are so named because they can be made and baked quickly.  They were pretty quick to make and taste yummy!

2 cups flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1 ounce pieces

1 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt onto a piece of wax paper.

3  Beat butter and sugar on medium for 3 minutes until soft.  Scrape down bowl then add eggs and vanilla and beat on medium 2 minutes until smooth.  Scrape down bowl.  With mixer on low, gradually add dry ingredients until incorporated, about 30 seconds.  (I added another 3/4 – 1 cup  flour here because the dough was really sticky.)  Add chocolate chips and mix in by hand.

4  Using cookie scoop, scoop onto baking sheets and slightly flatten each cookie.  (Don’t omit this step, I did with the first batch and they came out in round little balls, unless you like your cookies like that then go ahead and don’t flatten them!)  Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.  Let cool slightly before removing from baking sheets.

Makes about 4 dozen.
