double chocolate chunk cookies

December 30, 2006 at 10:24 pm | Posted in Chocolate, Cookies | 2 Comments

yesterday i tried out a batch of these cookies. the taste was pleasant, but i didn’t quite favour the texture – when you bite into it there’s somewhat of a crunch, and then it crumbles in your mouth. it’s a matter of personal preference. 🙂

other than that, the presence of white chocolate chips surely gave the cookie an extra kick. 😉

from donna hay’s modern classics book 2. makes a lot because i made them small.

250g butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa powder
140g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
140 white chocolate, broken into chunks

1. preheat the oven to 150 degrees celsius. place the butter and sugars in a bowl and beat until light and creamy.

2. add the eggs gradually and beat well. add the flour, baking powder, cocoa and chocolate and mix well. shape 2 tablespoonsfuls of the mixture into rounds. (this will make big cookies, make smaller balls if you prefer)

3. place on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper (or you can just lightly grease them with butter/oil), allowing room for the cookies to spread, and flatten slightly. bake for 20-25 minutes. cool on wire racks.

  1. ooohh, these look so good…from the pictures they look very crispy and rich. Do you think increasing the baking temp would help with the texture? 150 degree C seems a little cool for baking cookies…just a thought…
    nevertheless, gorgeous looking cookies!

  2. that might be a factor i presume? should try it out again. hee.
