PMS cookies

Standard

If you are reading this and you are a woman, then you understand why one might need a PMS cookie. If you are a man and you are reading this, you know a woman who may need these some day and it would be helpful to know how to bake them!

All day today I was CRAVING something sweet. I just couldn”t figure out what it was I wanted. I searched pinterest high and low, nothing looked good. Until I saw it…. http://www.annies-eats.com/2011/01/14/giant-double-chocolate-cookies/ I had to make them.

The recipe said it only made 12 large cookies, now now, this would just not do, I needed more than 12! So I doubled the recipe. Now looking back, I really don’t need that many Large cookies. But I know I will eat them anyway. So I will give the recipe for a single batch of 12…if you are like me, then double it. The photos will be showing the doubled portions…so dont be shocked!

You will need…remember this is for a single batch of 12…for 24 like the pictures show you need to double this.:

1 cup (2 sticks) cold, unsalted butter, cubed

1¼ cup sugar

2 large eggs

½ cup dark cocoa powder

2¼ cups all-purpose flour

¼ tsp. coarse salt

1 tsp. baking powder

2½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

So put down a piece of parchment paper, and put your dough on that and knead…yes with your hands!

Next thing you wanna do is make a nice even rectangle, or square, or whatever shape you’re lil PMS’ing heart desires. Make sure the dough is even all the way around though
