Double Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every once in a while when our daughter's were growing up they would copy down a recipe from one of their friend's moms. This recipe became a favorite of ours and we called them Mrs. Neufeld's cookies. The secret to them turning out almost like bite size brownies is taking them out of the oven when they are not quite baked. If you love chocolate these are for you.

  • 1 1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Combine dry ingredients and blend into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Do not over bake. Let cookies rest on pan for 1 minute and then transfer to a cooling rack. Cookies will flatten when cooling. They should be very soft and a little chewy.

  11. Why do these look so good, especially this late in the afternoon? Did someone already mention the milk?

  13. Yum........I've made these (only difference is that my recipe calls for one cup butter) and they are truly scrumptious. Try substituting the chocolate chips with Reese's pieces or M & M's!

  17. This is very similar to a "Best of Bridge" recipe which is ever so tasty. I made a batch last night for a playdate today & they are nearly all gone! I think my son would eat them for dinner if he could!
