Chocolate cookies….who doesn’t like it especially kids. My kids loves cookies, so whenever I have time I will make them…the problem is there are too many version of them. Sometimes in order for you to find the one that fit your family’s taste bud, you have to try a few. I have tried lots of them and have found few that I think are worth keeping, one of them is this recipe. I got this from Chef Ina Garten…one of my favourite chef from Food Network. Let’s see what do we need.
- 1/2 pound unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 extra-large eggs at room temperature
- 2/3 cup good unsweetened cocoa
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt (I used normal salt)
- 1 1/2 pounds good white chocolate, coarsely chopped
Preheat the oven to 175C.
Cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the vanilla, then the eggs, 1 at a time, and mix well. Add the cocoa and mix again. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the chocolate with the mixer on low speed until just combined. Fold in the chopped white chocolate.
Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop or a rounded tablespoon. Dampen your hands and flatten the dough slightly. Bake for exactly 15 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone). Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
