Chewy Chocolate Cookies

I didn't realize in my last post that I gave a recipe for the muffins that I had already given a recipe for just in the previous post! Oops!

So to make up for it, here's one of my other very favorite cookie recipes:

Chewy Chocolate Cookies
1 1/2 cups melted butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour( I use bread flour in all my cookie recipes, but you can use regular)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
I mix the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla together first, then add dry ingrediants. Drop by spoonfulls onto cookie sheets(I spray with olive spray or pam)
cook for 8-10 minutes in preheated oven at 350.
Like the peanut butter cookies in the previous recipe, the secret to these is timing. If you overcook they will be crispy. They should look undercooked when you take them out, just starting to brown at the edges. They puff while baking and flatten as they cool. Store in ziplock bags or wrap with plastic wrap immediatly after cooling or they will get crispy. These are chewy like fudge brownies, and oh so yummy!
