There’s nothing like walking in the door after a long day and the house smells like chocolate. This is one of our favourite cookie recipes—a dark, brownie-like, chocolate chip cookie studded with white chocolate chips (although they’re just as good with dark chocolate, dried cherries or whatever you can find in your cupboards!). Plus, they come together in no time, freeze beautifully and put a smile on a kid’s face in a snap.
Inside-Out Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt and stir or beat on low until almost combined; add the chocolate chips and stir just until the dough comes together.
Drop dough by the spoonful onto a parchment-lined sheet and bake for 10-14 minutes, until the cookies are set around the edges but still soft in the middle. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
