And the winner of the puppy biscuits is....
I set the eggs & butter on the counter to get to room temperature for today's recipe.. and.. she ate the 2 sticks of butter. Good times in the Hagg household ;)
I was only mad for a minute..ok, maybe longer. She has been forgiven & I just gave her a biscuit ( ... so it took me all day) Lucky for her I had another cup of butter in the fridge so that I could still make today's cookie...
Double Chocolate Chunk cookies!
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 sticks butter, softened (far enough on counter so that your special loved ones can't get to them)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 cups chocolate chunks ( chips would work as well...)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter & sugars together; add eggs, 1 at a time allowing each to fully incorporate. Add vanilla & cocoa powder.
In a large bowl, add flour, salt & baking soda. using a whisk, whisk together.
Ad flour mixture to butter mixture in 3 parts. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Drop by tablespoons ( I use a cookie scoop) onto parchment- lined cookies sheet. Bake 10-13 minutes. Allow to cool on a cooling rack.
This is a very tasty recipe.. Alison usually makes these for us, but since she was at school getting her learning on, I made them today ;) Very fudgy... I'll bet that you could just spread the dough in a 9 x13 inch pan ( greased) and bake like brownies....
ok.. so the winner of the biscuits is
*insert picture of winning pup here*
Morgan!!!! ( Breezy's pup!!)... I'll be shipping out the biscuits tomorrow! Congratulations!
I made a fresh batch last night,, this time I didn't puree the carrots & peas mixture, just kind of rough chopped. I think that they look better. Fenway seems to like them. Much better than raw butter.
p.s. tomorrow I have a special guest for the 'classic' Christmas cookie!!!
And Jason & Amanda are still on the road ... good thoughts are always welcomed :)
