Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate Chocolate Cookies - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A very fudgy and tasty cookie that will cure any chocolate craving!!I recently bought a cooling rack – crazy, right? You would think that someone who bakes regularly (and has for a few years now) and also owns things like a spiralizer and spring form pan would own a cooling rack, but no dice. I found a pretty big one at TJ Maxx for a nice price, but I was sold on it based off of the recipe it came with! So there you have it people, if you want Rebekah to buy something, throw a really delicious looking recipe on it, and she will buy it! ALSO football tonight. Like Michigan football. My first love. My Aggies play Saturday so you can bet I will have some recipes this weekend (including raspberry limeade margaritas -OMG YES). Also, totally forgot to take pictures of the finished product until after they were almost gone, sorry about that!! (just a testament to how fast they disappear!) Adieu fam!

Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate Chocolate Cookies - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A very fudgy and tasty cookie that will cure any chocolate craving!!Yield: about 30 cookies
Prep Time: 2 hours                        Cook Time: 10-12 minutes

What you need:

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate (like Baker’s), melted
  • 6 teaspoons of water (more or less depending on your dough)
  • chocolate chips, to top (amount depends on preference, will explain later!)

Directions:

  • Cream  shortening and sugar together with a mixer in a large bowl
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg, vanilla, and milk together. In a third bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together
  • Add the melted chocolate to the sugar mixture and mix until well combined
  • Fold in a little bit of the dry ingredients, then the wet, and then mix. Repeat until all of the ingredients are added and well mixed
  • If your dough is very dry, add 1 teaspoon of water, and mix. Continue adding water by the teaspoon until the dough comes together smoothly (it took 6 teaspoons for me which is also 2 tablespoons)
  • Turn the dough out onto a LIGHTLY floured surface and roll it out into a rectangle about 9 “x 13”
  • Once you have rolled the dough out, roll it into a log about 2″ in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap or wax paper
  • Refrigerate for at least an hour and a half or the dough is firm
  • Preheat the oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Cut the dough into discs, about 1/4″ thick. Lay flat and place 4 or so chocolate chips into each cookie – really press them down
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes (mine took 10 at 350 according to my oven thermometer!)
  • Let sit for 1 minute before removing to your handy dandy cooling rack!
