double chocolate cookies


I take a short hiatus from Texas re-caps for a cookie recipe.. (Texas: Hill Country post has been updated with a few photos!)

Ooey-gooey, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate cookies studded with semi-sweet chocolate chips. The quintessential way to satisfy a chocolate craving!

I made these cookies on a very humid day and my butter way also very soft. The cookie dough was almost spongy, and the resulting cookie was incredibly soft. Although delicious, the cookies fell apart easily. I had refrigerated part of the dough to be made at another time, and this dough yielded a crunchy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside, stable cookie. So, if the latter cookie is preferred, I recommend refrigerating the dough for at least 30 minutes.
