Chocolate -Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cook Time:

9 minutes

Prep Times:

15 minutes

Yield:

21/2 dozen

Ingredients:

8 ounces semisweet chocolate chocolate chips
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz.)

Preparation:

1. In a double boiler, stir 8 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate and butter often until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove bowl from over water and, with a whisk or a mixer on medium speed, beat in the sugar, egg, and vanilla until well blended.

2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to chocolate mixture and stir until well blended. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.

3. Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions 3 inches apart onto buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

4. Bake in a 350° just until cookies are set on the edges but still slightly soft in the center, 7 to 8 minutes. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer to racks to cool completely.
