Today, I decided to deviate from the usual.
I stopped myself from baking another cake or cupcake. Which was really hard since I wanted to try this recipe so bad.
So restrain myself, I did. And then I realized I also wanted to try a new cookie recipe I found the other day.
What do you say about the combination of cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate chips, chopped white chocolate and crushed Oreo cookies? I say, “I die!”
The moment I laid my eyes on the mouth-watering photos, I couldn’t resist baking them.
And what a good time it was since I had all the ingredients in my kitchen. Throw caution to the wind and bake, yes. That’s what you do when you see something as delicious as this. If I can eat it off my monitor, I would. Heh.
I found the screenshot of the recipe photo via Lori yesterday. The next minute, I found myself searching Google for the recipe. Thank God for technology, within seconds I found the recipe on Michelle's site.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup dutch processed cocoa
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped white chocolate
1 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, sift flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.Set aside.
With a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Add in eggs, one at a time. Next, add in vanilla extract. Mix until blended.
Slowly add flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix until flour disappears. Stir in chocolate chunks and Oreos.
Scoop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. I use a small scooper, around 1-inch in size since I am not a fan of big cookies. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Don't over bake.
Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes. Move to a cooling rack and cool completely.
** I halved the recipe and got around 25-30 medium-sized cookies.
