Larry's favorite Cookies

I combined my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and my Mom's brownie recipe (called "Larry's favorite brownies") and made a yummy, double chocolate cookie recipe. I'm now calling them "Larry's favorite cookies" (which isn't really true, because Larry, my dad, claims peanut butter cookies as his favorite).

Here's the recipe:

Preheat oven to 325.

1 stick of unsalted butter; melted
1 large egg and 1 egg yolk
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/4 flour (I used 1 1/2 cup and they were a little too firm, next time I want them to spread a little more so I'll use less flour).
1/2 salt
1/2 baking soda
chocolate chips (I don't measure chocolate chips I just pour them in)

Melt your butter and let cool till warm. Mix all dry ingredients. Add butter, eggs, vanilla, cocoa and sugar to the bowl and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix, adding chocolate chips towards the end. With a 1/4 measuring cup scoop out dough and roll into a big ball. Break your cookie ball in half and put on your cookie sheet "rough" side up. Bake 16 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes. Yields: 1 1/2 dozen (18 cookies).

They are so yummy!

Note: These only make 18 cookies, so if you have a big family like I do, you might wanna double the recipe. Or to help you with portion control keep the recipe the same. Our family tends to eat warm cookies till there gone...
