Double Chocolate Cookies

These are really good. They’re not at all chewy, but I wouldn’t call them cakey either. They’re tender, bordering on fudgy, and puffy. The dough is basically a good transport system for the chocolate chips, so use really good chocolate chips.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add flour, unsweetened cocoa and baking powder to creamed mixture and fold until combined. Fold in white chips. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Allow 3 inches between cookies.

    Yeah, I need to blame it on something. At least I haven’t lost my enthusiasm towards wine. In fact, it’s increased 10-fold! Now what kind of road am I going down??? ;)

    “transport system” – heh. From counter to mouth or mouth to my ass? Looks good either way. ;)
