These are easy and super quick. I got it from a great book - " Biggest Book Of Cookies". And it is the biggest book of cookies I've ever seen. Lots of great recipes in there and fun festive cookies - and we all know how I love holiday baking!
And who doesn't love a recipe where you don't have to pull out your mixer?! All you need is a trusty spatula or whisk and a bowl. The dough is easy to make and before you know it, you've got fudgie cookies.
|this dough is damn|
My only complaint - this doesn't make a lot of cookies. So I suggest doubling it. Because they are tasty and fudgie. And shortcuts on this one - use silpats or parchment paper instead of greasing the pan; for melting the chocolate - just stick it in the microwave...I always do. Who wants to do that double-boiler thing everytime you need to melt chocolate?!

1 12 oz package of semisweet chocolate chips
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 tbsp butter
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a large cookie sheet; set aside. In a medium heavy saucepan heat 1 cup of the chocolate chips, unsweetened chocolate and butter until melted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla, and baking powder. Beat with a wooden spoon until combined, scraping sides of pan occasionally. Stir in remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips.
