Have you ever had a cookie that looked like a cookie but had the texture and taste of a brownie? We tried them and they’re delicious! We made the same dough but separated them before we added chocolate chips that way Jaydie could eat them too. They’re dairy free until you add chocolate chips! These cookies are fudgy and chewy, but really easy to pack for lunches or snacks and take with you!
Preheat the oven to 350°F
You start with 1 cup of butter or margarine, softened. (We used lactose free margarine so Jaydie could eat them) 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, 2 eggs, and 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
Beat the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and eggs until they’re light and fluffy! It took me about a minute and a half, on a low speed. I like to use an electric mixer when I’m making cookies like these.
In another bowl mix 2 cups of all purpose flour, 2/3 cup of cocoa powder, (We used Hershey’s) 3/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir them together until they’re completely mixed. I like to watch TV or listen to music while I’m cooking or baking! You can see Cheer Squad playing on my phone! Embarrassing. I love shows that I don’t really have to pay attention to though!
Slowly add the dry flour and cocoa powder mix to the butter, eggs, and sugar. Beat them together until they’re completely combined. I added about a half cup of the dry mix then used the mixer to combine them thoroughly. Then I’d add another half cup, and so on and so forth, until the dry mix was completely gone.
This is how it looks combined, without any chocolate chips. This is where we took cookies out for Jaydie! Until this point they’re dairy free! We baked about 12 cookies for him to have for himself.
Stir in a 10 ounce package of chocolate chips. We used half milk chocolate and half semi sweet chocolate. You can use white chocolate, peanut butter, a mix of chips, whatever you want!
I forgot to get a picture of them before we put them in the oven! We got 12 on a cookie sheet, using a small scoop! Bake them for 8-10 minutes. Until they’re just set. I leave them on the cookie sheet until the next batch is done because if I try to move them to the wire rack now they just fall apart. You can get anywhere from 3-4 dozen depending on how big you make your cookies. We like smaller ones so we got about 39 cookies out of it!
1 Cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened.
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 cups All-Purpose flour
2/3 cup Cocoa Powder
3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 10 ounce package of chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (if you want them)
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Beat the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla with an electric mixer until they’re light and fluffy. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add them to the butter mixture, beating together until it’s well blended.
Stir in your chocolate chips and nuts. Drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until your cookies are just set. They should look a little under cooked, like a brownie. They’ll finish setting up while they’re on the cookie sheet.
I hope you love these as much as we do! It’s really easy to make these dairy free if you need to. They keep for up to a week but I doubt they’ll last that long! Let me know if you try them! What would you change or add?
