Chocolate Duet Cookies
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (for less sweetness use less white chocolate and more semi-sweet chocolate)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts nuts
Preheat oven to 375°F (you may need to adjust this based on your particular oven, my mom’s oven bakes these perfectly at 375° and my dad’s needs to be set at 350°.)
Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
Beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, then beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop level tablespoons of dough about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets and bake in batches in middle of oven until puffed and set, about 8-10 minutes. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool. Makes about 30 cookies.
