recipes are easy to make and the portions are just right for the husband & I. I'm thinking this book will make it onto my Christmas list this year.
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 Tbs. white sugar
1/8 tsp. baking soda
sprinkle of salt
4 squares semi-sweet chocolate (1 oz. each)
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/4 c. chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
3. In a small bowl, mix the flour, brown and white sugars, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
4. Melt the squares of chocolate and butter in a medium sized bowl at 50% power in the microwave (about 3 1/2 minutes, stirring halfway).
5. Stir in the vanilla into the melted chocolate. Gradually stir in the flour mixture. Add the egg and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips.
6. Use a lightly greased tablespoon to scoop the dough and drop in mounds on the lined baking sheet. Make about 12 mounds, 2 inches apart.
7. Bake about 14 minutes, or until the edges are firm but the middle is still a little soft. Cool until lukewarm before removing from baking sheet.
Yield: 12 cookies

My thoughts: If your baking sheets are in good condition, you don't need the parchment paper. I used white chocolate chips, because they were already opened. Any kind of chip would be delicious. I used my melon ball scoop and got 14 cookies, I probably could have gotten 16 if I hadn't eaten the cookie dough.
P.S. You will definitely need a large glass of milk to go along with these cookies. They also remind me a lot of another easy brownie-like cookie I made awhile back, cocoa fudge cookie's.
