Best Ever Chocolate Cookies
Contributed by Diane S.
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsps. vanilla extract
1 cup (generous) semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 Tbls. milk
In one bowl, combine flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda
and baking powder; set aside. In another bowl, beat sugar
and butter together until light and fluffy. Beat in egg
and vanilla extract; add the dry ingredients, mix well.
Preheat oven to 350. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place
the balls 2-inches apart (the cookies do spread somewhat)
on an ungreased cookie sheet. Next, push in the center of
each ball with your thumb (if baking these cookies with
your kids, use Mom's thumb) to make an indentation. Heat
chips and milk in saucepan until the chocolate is melted.
Stir this mixture until smooth. Spoon the chocolate into
each indentation. Bake 10-12 minutes (cookies should look
"dry"). Cool on racks. Makes 48 cookies.
