These cookies were born to forever solve the ‘double-fudge-or-chocolate-chip-cookie’ arguments.
Now you can easily enjoy both of these heavenly cookies at the same time.
Isn’t it just AWESOME!
The inventor of this delicious treat, the lovely Jessica from howsweeteats.com, definitely deserves my gratitude. Creating this recipe might have been a small step for her household, but it surely is a giant leap for the mankind…
To make your own Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookies, you will need these ingredients.
The fudge dough and the chocolate chip dough are worked in two separate bowls. The ingredients that form the doughs are almost the same, the only difference is that the fudge dough contains cocoa powder and it also uses a slightly different amount of flour.
1. Working in two separate large bowls (one for the fudge dough and the other one for the chocolate chip dough), using a fork or an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugars until creamy.
I have generously granted myself the right to post recipes for Christmas cookies here, on this little site of mine, well before the actual Christmas day arrives.
I do it all for the sheer good it can do to mankind, you know. I need people to know what my favorite cookies are, how else could they possibly go on? My sweet tooth plays no role in this game. Although, it might play a little role, if you insist. Okay, it plays a huge role! So now you know it!
To kick it all off, I have made my very favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies today.
I will definitely be making these this month again. Mostly because they are just awesome! Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, full of chocolate deliciousness – pure heaven!
Here’s all the necessary steps that will get you to that lovely heaven too…
Here’s what we need.
1. First, preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In the bowl of your electric mixer, beat the butter until smooth and creamy.
These bite-sized cookies are perfect for having with tea.
(Psst, coffee is all right too.)
They taste wonderful and are very, very simple to make.
I like to prepare them when my sugar craving strikes out of the blue. Or when friends call unexpectedly saying they will come soon.
These cookies just save lives.
Here’s the list of ingredients.
1. To make your own Tea Cookies, first preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Sift the flour and sugars into a larger bowl.
3. Add the softened butter, two egg yolks and lemon zest…
4. …and use pastry cutter or just a plain fork to turn the ingredients into a crumbly mixture.
5. Then use your hands to form a ball.
Like this one.
Though creating a face is not necessary.
But it helps.
But it really does.
Now I’d like to tell you this: Please, be patient when you find yourself in the phase in-between the crumbs and the dough ball. It only takes patience and trust that those crumbs will eventually come together. Give it five minutes or so and you’ll see success!
6. Place the dough ball on a very, very lightly floured surface.
This dough is almost not sticky at all so you really need very little flour, if any.
And besides that, the more flour you’d be using the firmer the cookies would get. And we don’t need that.
7. Using the palms of your hands, roll the dough until you form a log which is about 1.5 inches (3.5 cm) wide in diameter.
8. Then cut the log into about 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick rounds.
9. Place the rounds onto the sheet and bake in the preheated oven (350 °F – 175 °C) for 10 minutes.
The cookies should still be very pale in color when baked.
10. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
Enjoy, dear friends.
(This recipe makes about 30 cookies and will take you about 40 minutes to make.)
