Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in one egg until completely incorporated; beat in last egg along with vanilla extract. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until just incorporated; mix in chocolate chips.
  3. Roll dough into 2-inch balls, or drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until edges of cookies are firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to wire racks. Dust warm cookies with confectioners' sugar, if desired.

My family LOVES this recipe. My girls are dairy free (sadly) so we just sub out the butter for fake stuff and omit the choc chips. DELICIOUS. A big hit at parties too!

Yummy cookie but not cake like. I would describe it as a brownie cookie. Omitted confectioners sugar because it was omitted from directions.

I make this recipe often for gifts, and it's very popular! I don't add the chocolate chips - with a good quality cocoa, chips are overkill. As with any kind of soft-style cookie, the trick is to cook it until the top is just set. It will continue to harden out of the oven, and end up the perfect texture.
