Cookie Exchange 2013

Every year, my family has a cookie exchange during December. It is always a fun time to get together and catch up with each other during the busy holiday season. This year I made Chocolate Chocolate Chunk cookies that came out amazing.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the butter and 12 ounces (2 cups) of the chocolate. Microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth; let cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix). Fold in the remaining 12 ounces (2 cups) of chocolate. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  4. Drop mounds of the dough (about 1 heaping tablespoon each) 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until firm around the edges and cracked on the tops, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
First, mix up everything up. Doesn't even the dough look delicious?? And of course I used my trusty Kitchen-Aid mixer-
Next, drop onto cookie sheets. 
Here is the delicious finished product!!
I packaged the cookies in these cute containers that I found @ Target-
