Chocolate Cookies

A home with kids should always be prepared to handle their sudden and unexpected hunger pangs. My pantry is always filled with either biscuits (esp Oreo) or cookies or cakes *smiles*...Like all kids, my kids too love anything which has chocolate. So, everytime I find some recipe with chocolate, I give it a try.

Recipe Adapted from: Hershey's

All purpose flour - 2 cups
Cocoa powder - 2/3 cup
Baking soda - 3/4 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Butter - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Eggs - 2
Vanilla essence - 2 tsp
Chocolate chips - 1 1/2 cups

  • Heat oven to 350 F.
  • Sieve together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Beat butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla essence in a large bowl until fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture and beat well.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10mins or until set. {In a microwave oven, bake at 600W for 7-8 mins}
  • Cool slightly and remove from cookie sheet to the wire rack. Cool completely.

Note: Though it looked like a 'parippuvada', it tasted like a cookie and it was delicious!!!
