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
Cream the sugar and the butter together for 2-3 minutes
Should look nice and fluffy
Then add your eggs one at a time and blend them in
It should look creamy like this
Now for the cocoa…I used Hersheys Special Dark cocoa powder
Mic until thoroughly combined
Next add your flour, salt and baking powder
You will have a to die for dough now….dont dive in, you still need to add the chips!
Mmm chocolate chips…you may need a heavy-duty spoon to fold these into the batter
This is as far as a spoon would get me.
So put down a piece of parchment paper, and put your dough on that and knead…yes with your hands!
You will get it looking like this, just make sure there are going to be chips in all the cookies
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
Cut that shape into 12 (or 24 if you doubled) even sized whatevers 😛
Roll them up into balls, and place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet (little helpers like this part)
The flatten them a bit
Put them in a 350 degree F oven for 16-20 minutes. I did 20min
You will have fist size chocolate goodness
Le them rest on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes
Transfer them to a cooling rack
