decided that she wanted to try baking something in her toaster oven, so she and SarahFletcher
walked to the store and came back with a variety of baking supplies and then had to decide what it was they wanted to bake. They decided to make chocolate chip cookies but did not really have a recipie, so they used google and then combined recipies until they had something that sounded reasonable. As they were making them they decided to add cocoa powder to half of the batch. That turned out to be a GoodIdea
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 sticks butter
- ~1 teaspoon vanilla
- ~3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/3 cup (6 tablespoons) cocoa powder
- 2 cups flour plus enough to make it the right consistency
- 1 bag chocolate chips.
Mix the sugar together and then cream with the butter. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Mix the remaining ingredients together (other than chocolate chips) in a seperate bowl and then mix them into the sugar mixture. Add more flour until it is the right consistency (about like PlayDoh? - the more flour you add the less they will spread). Stir in chocolate chips. Cook at 350 F, until they look done (about 6 minutes or so).
- Besides just adding cocoa powder, it is fun to take a small blob of chocolate dough and a small blob of not-chocolate dough and to twist it together before baking. It makes the cookies all swirly :-)
- Note from SarahFletcher in 2017: In my conventional oven 9 or 10 minutes works better. Also, you should probably expect it to be more like 3 cups of flour plus some rather than 2 cups plus a little. If you are in a humid place (like Atlanta during a rainstorm), you might even be closer to 4 cups.
