Recipe: Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

 After years of service, Jodi, one of my wooden spoons died.  It served me well, all over the country in all sorts of recipes.  Jodi was the name written of the end of the spoon in marker.  I have to assume that ther person who owned this spoon before me was named Jodi.  I found it in my youth while dumpster diving.  In fact, I have a whole line of dumpstered wooden cooking utensils, but Jodi was a favorite.  She will be missed.


These are a simple variation of the base for me s'mores cookies.  Nothing new and unique here but still a fantastic cookies to fill that plate for my bedtime snack.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of oil
1/3 cup of brown sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, add the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips, mix well.  Once the dry ingredients are mixed well, add the water, oil, and vanilla and fold until the dough is moist and thick.

Form into typical cookie shapes and bake for 15 mins.  Allow to sit on the baking sheet for an additional 5 minutes then place on a cooling rack.
