Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

Recipe: Triple Chocolate Cookies

Recipe: Triple Chocolate Cookies

I love brownies. I mean, I LOVE brownies. I also love cookie recipes that make a batch big enough that my larger-than-average family gets to enjoy more than two cookies each.

This recipe makes 7.5 dozen cookies -- perfect for bake sales and big families, or for freezing ahead -- and pack a huge, chocolatey punch.

Ingredients:

2 cups butter
3 cups dark brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

4 cups flour
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups milk chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Using your largest bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla.

In a second bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add to the butter mixture and mix until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips.

On a greased or parchment lined pan, drop the cookie dough in 2 tbsp scoops, making sure to leave some space between the cookies. Bake for 12-14 minutes.

Use a spatula to carefully transfer the cookies to a cooling rack. The cookies will be very soft -- don't worry, they firm up as they cool!

Makes 7.5 dozen cookies.
