Double Cocoa Dream Cookies - A Versatile Cookie with Many Variations

I meant to post these yesterday for Cookie Friday, but... make them, and I will be forgiven. They're that good.

Double Cocoa Dream Cookies
adapted slightly from my favorite Nestle cookbook

You'll need:

1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
2/3 heaping cup granulated sugar (this is a lesser amount than called for, so you can add more if you prefer reaaallly sweet cookies)
1 scant cup packed brown sugar
1 - 11/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose (we use unbleached) flour, packed
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
dash salt
2 cups semi- sweet chocolate chips*

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugars, and vanilla until creamy. Beat in eggs until light and fluffy. In a small bowl (or simply add to the butter mixture), combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. The cocoa powder is super dusty, so beware when using an electric mixer- start on low. Stir in chocolate chips when thoroughly mixed.

*I've used a combination of creme de menthe and semi-sweet chips, peanut butter and semi-sweet chips, and milk chocolate and semi-sweet chips...ALL delicious!!!

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheet (or parchment paper). Bake 8-10 minutes or until slightly puffy. Remove from oven and let stand a minute or two before removing to wire rack to cool.

Eat just one.
I dare you.  ;)
