I meant to post this a long time ago. The first time I had baked them, LO deleted all the pictures off my camera (2 recipes worth of pictures!). NOT COOL! The second time I baked them I also had a problem, we got super busy and my posts got backed up. So here on a Friday I am posting this lovely baking recipe.
Here is what you need;
- 1 1/2 C all purpose flour
- 1/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt (if using salted butter, nix this ingredient)
- 1/2 C butter (I used unsalted) – at room temp.
- 3/4 C brown sugar (packed)
- 1/4 C granulated sugar
- 1 egg – at room temp.
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1.5 tbsp + 1 tsp red food colouring
- 1 C white chocolate chips (I mixed semi-sweet and white chocolate)
In a medium bowl add the flour, salt, baking soda and cocoa powder together and mix together. Set bowl aside.
In a large bowl beat the butter on medium until it becomes creamy. Scrape down the sides as needed.
Add in brown and granulated sugar and continue to mix and scrape down the sides to get everything together.
Add in egg, vanilla and red food colouring (OH had to help me for pictures on this one) and continue to mix.
Turn the mixer off and add dry ingredients.
Mix all ingredients together until dough forms. Add chocolate chips.
Ok, this is where you can take a break from all that mixing! Cover the bowl tightly with saran wrap and place in fridge for 1 hour.
While waiting for that, I turned the oven on at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and I washed the dishes.
I also made these cool water colour mugs.
And then I was ready to continue these delicious cookies!
Take a spoonful of the dough and roll it into a ball. Place it on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Place in the oven and bake for about 10 – 12 minutes. Remove them and they should still be a bit soft.
Take the back of a spoon and flatten each cookie lightly, add some chips on top.
They should look and taste so good!
As you can see, one didn’t make it to the end of this post.
