Easy Homemade Chewy Chocolate Cookies


I have been on a total dessert kick that last few weeks.  I am going to be in trouble when i have to start making changes… I think I mentioned this last week.

But anyway, I thought I would try out a recipe from our family cook book that I have never made before.  It is from my brother Rand, the chef and his comment in the cookbook about the recipe cracks me up! – it is just so Rand –  “None of this rolling in powdered sugar stuff or adding walnuts!  This exact recipe won the cookie of the year on Martha Stewart’s T.V. show.  Now I will never be able to win the Betty Crocker bake off.  D@%^!”

Anyway, I like this recipe cuz it is made from scratch, I love a good cake mix recipe and I make them too, but sometimes, you are out of cake mixes?  right?  But if you have the baking basics you can always make these!

Chewy Chocolate Cookies
2 cups Sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 ts baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup cocoa
In a large bowl cream butter and add sugar, beating well.  Add eggs one at a time, until well blended.  Mix in vanilla.  In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa; add gradually to butter mixer.  (sometimes you have to add a bit of water).  Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
We enjoyed them…
Okay then, what have you been cooking up?
