And now I'm at home with my kids. And it's winter time. And it looks like Wisconsin FINALLY decided to act like it was winter time and give us a good snow. Sounds like a Pajama Day to me!!
And I've decided that it really can't be Pajama Day without a seriously good cookie to go with it.
Triple Chocolate Cookies
Recipe from Ellie Krieger
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 oz dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa solids), coarsely chopped*
2 oz milk chocolate, coarsely chopped*
2/3 cup pecans
*Substituting white chocolate chips for one of these is also quite yummy.
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. In a large bowl, mash together the butter and sugars with a fork until well combined. Add the oil and egg and beat until creamy. Mix in the vanilla.
|Mashing with a fork makes for easier blending later.|
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, cocoa, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well. Stir in both chocolates and nuts and mix well.
|Great way to sneak in healthy whole wheat flour!|
4. Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop the batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until the cookies are just set, about 12 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a rach to cool Store at room temperature in an air tight container for up to 4 days.
|Didn't even last long enough to get a picture of them baked.|
These are DANG TASTY. They are cookies, but they also have this chewy consistency that tastes almost like a brownie. So a cookie, that occasionally masquerades as a brownie, and it's HEALTHY??? Dude. Make these. You're welcome.
