My Best Cookies Ever

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1.5 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cups walnuts (optional)

Preheat over to 350 degrees

In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light & fluffy.

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda & salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended.

Mix in chocolate chips & walnuts.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes in preheated oven, or just until set.

Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

*My family has now declared these cookies their favorites!*

Those really look good! We're trying to diet here but aren't having any luck. Maybe I'll make some of these and then we'll start our diet the next week LOL

Divine! Oh Tracy, these looks wonderful. I really love chocolate chip cookies with cocoa in them, that additional bitter chocolate flavour takes it over the edge. I have a mocha cookie recipe that is very similar. I will have to try these out. Do you mind me reviewing them?

I wish I lived on Star Trek and I could beam those cookies up to me :)

The cookies look lushious, but I am intrigued by your previous post. I think many of us a frustrated artist,not just for painting but in all fields of endevor. I think that putting that to work in our homes is one of the best expressions of our yearning, because it can make our home more beautiful, livable and eaiser for us to have the enthusiasm to maintain.

Suzie is right, this recipe does seem simple! These cookies look delicious. Cocoa powder is going on the shopping list so I can make these soon, I don't think anyone in my family would object to a chocolatey cookie. =)
