Double Dark Chocolate Cookies

I am still baking for Operation Baking Gals and I am having fun, selecting recipes to make.  I make new recipes that go quickly.  Last night, I made ginger cookies and these chocolate ones.  I like a crispier ginger cookie than the one I made but this was perfect, a little soft and chewy with chunks of chocolate in them.  


These are from Better Homes and Gardens.  I have been finding great success with their recipes.  

Double Dark Chocolate Cookies Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens - Makes: 36 servings

Ingredients: 

¼ cup margarine, softened

· ¼ cup canola oil

· ½ cup packed brown sugar

· ¼ cup granulated sugar

· 1 egg

· 1 teaspoon vanilla

· 1 cup all-purpose flour

· ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

· ½ teaspoon baking powder

· 1/8 teaspoon salt

· 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Beat in oil, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well combined. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined.

In a medium bowl whisk together flours, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt; beat into sugar mixture. Stir in chopped chocolate.

Drop dough by slightly rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets.

Bake about 12 minutes or just until edges are set. Let cool 1 minute on cookie 

sheets.   Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool. Makes about 36 cookies.
