this batch of cookies is for another friend whose birthday is coming up. this cookie is intensely chocolatey; having both cocoa powder and chocolate chips. it has a crispy exterior and a softer, chewy interior.

1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
115g butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup chocolate chips (i used a portion of “duo-tone” chocolate chips)

1. preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius. grease baking trays with oil/butter.

2. in a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

3. in a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. beat in egg, followed by vanilla extract. gradually, with the mixer on low speed, blend in the flour mixture, stopping when no streaks of dry ingredients remain. stir in chocolate chips.

4. place rounded tablespoons of dough (about 1-inch balls) onto prepared baking sheet. (alternatively, you could use your hands to roll dough into balls)

5. bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies begin to crack on the top.

6. cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

(makes around 50 cookies)
