Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are several things in life I am not sure I will ever understand.

One of them would probably have to be high school kids. Not all high school kids, but quite a few. My days in my high school consist of me seeing other high schoolers doing the following…

listening to their iPods, WHILE there is music being played in the hallway speakers. Is your music really that important to you? Ok, that’s not that horrible, it just looks pretty funky to me.

And then there are the groups of kids who insist on taking up the entire hallways by walking side by side, so their little “pack” can pretty much bulldoze anybody over who is trying to walk in the opposite direction.

Lastly, and definitely the MOST ANNOYING…is some couple’s PDA. I’m not trying to sound jealous here or anything, like truly it’s great that two kids like and care for each other. I’m sure you two will be happily married, have 3 kids and live in a mansion together in 30 years. But seriously, must you lick each other’s faces off before each class?! I don’t even really mind seeing couples hold hands, but please do not bring out the tongues into any innocent, non intentional viewers. Please. I don’t even real understand how some couples can act so excited to see each other every passing period, like HELLO?! you just saw them like 45 minutes ago…But really I’m all for high school relationships. I insist.

Okay, now that you have heard my little ramble (I promise I’ll write something happy and positive about my school some other time to make up for my complaining. PROMISE!) on my school we can continue onto something fabulous.Double chocolate chip cookies. They’re like the good ‘ol classic chocolate chip cookies, but with DOUBLE the chocolate. If that isn’t greatness in a bite, then I don’t know what is!

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together butter and sugars in electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs and beat until well-incorporated. Mix in vanilla extract. Beat in cocoa powder. Mix in both flours, salt, and baking powder until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Scoop cookie dough onto cookie sheet by about the tablespoonful, 2 inches apart. (I made mine a bit on the smaller side, the bigger they are though they better cookie you will have. TRUE FACT)
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 16-20 minutes. Chocolate cookies like these are easy to over cook because of their color so you can’t really see when the edges are browning, you will know they are done if you just touch the edge of a cookie and it feels firm and the tops/centers are still fairly soft. Let cool on a rack and store in an air tight container when completely cool.
Random Fact of the Day: There are more 100 dollar bills in Russia currently than there are in the United States.

    Re:High School- Is it wrong that I totally agree with all that?? I never went to American High school, but I hate it when people have massive PDAs on the tube. In front of me. Ugh.
    I’m so gonna make these next weekend!
