Best Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
















I have made these cookies for several years.  They are from Allrecipes.com.  I really do love these cookies...a chocolate base with chocolate chips and nuts.  It is like a brownie cookie.  They are simple to make and are great to pack in cookie jars or school lunches.

1 cup margarine -- I used butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups flour
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips -- I used milk chocolate 
1 cup walnuts -- I added this














In a medium bowl, cream sugars with butter until smooth.    Beat in the eggs, one at a time and add vanilla.  Add baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.  Next add flour, one cup at a time, beat in well.  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.  Roll tablespoons of dough into rounds and bake at 375 degree (I used 350) oven for 8 to 10 minutes.  Do not overbake!  Cool on wire rack for 2 minutes.  When I made this recipe today, it made about 42, small-sized, cookies.

Sweetie I hope you don't mind I had a couple of cookies while I was browsing tonight. Yummy. OMG these are better than Lay's chips, "Betcha can't eat just one?"

Oh thank you for stopping by and for offering to send Colette a card. I so want to stuff her box with love. I promise to give updates periodically to let folks know how she is doing.
