Chocolate & Chocolate......LOVE!



It is Sunday evening, and when we are home and not out and about visiting family, I like to prepare a special meal. And....an ever so yummy dessert. I looked around at what I had in the pantry, checked out all my fav food websites, and started to throw something together. These yummy Cookie recipe is based off of Foodnetwork Ina Gartens recipe, but I tweaked it a bit to fit my fancy. I can never go wrong when making her food! Anyhow, these were Delicious! 
Try them they are oh so easy!





Double Chocolate Almond Cookies



Ingredients

  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) salted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed dark or light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix together. Add the flour mixture and continue mixing until just combined.
Add the chocolate and almonds and mix until combined. Using two tablespoons or a small ice cream scoop, drop the dough two inches apart on sheet pans lined with parchment. Bake for 15 minutes.
Cool the cookies on the cookie sheets. The cookies should be very soft when they are removed from the oven ( You will be tempted to start eating them while warm, but do not do it! They will be too soft and fall apart..... be patient, they will firm up as they cool.)

To be enjoyed with a tall glass of ice cold milk!
