Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies

This is another recipe that isn’t mine — it comes from Rachel, many years ago. They’re pretty much like the title says.


1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
8 oz semisweet chocolate, broken into 1/2 oz pieces
4 oz unsweetened chocolate, broken into 1/2 oz pieces
1 1/2 c light brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
(optionally) 3 c semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 325. Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together. Melt the chocolate (not the chips) over a double boiler. Beat butter and sugar; beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix in chocolate. Add flour and chips and mix. Drop on cookie sheet and bake. Cool on sheet 5-6 min before removing to a wire rack.
