A bit late posting… for the MAY Cookie Carnival! Is it really the first of June? Where does the time go!?
This month the Cookie Carnival actually suggested two recipes, and I could not help but to try out both! I could not even manage to get one of the post in the right month!
The recipe is originally found on the Martha Stewart website. These cookies are soft and chewy and chocolaty!
I made a small change, did not use unsalted butter and eliminated the salt.
My version of the recipe:
8 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped
4 Tbsp butter
2/3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chunks
Heat chopped chocolate and butter until almost melted. In another bowl, whisk flour and baking powder.
In mixing bowl beat eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in melted chocolate mixture. Stir in flour mixture until just combined and then add chocolate chunks.
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven about 12-15 minutes. Cookies will be shiny and crackled, yet soft in the center.
