Ingredients

  • 3/4 C unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 1/2 C sugar
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C all purpose flour
  • 3/4 C cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 C chocolate chips more to taste
  • 1 C chopped pecans best when lightly toasted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat mat.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. Add vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. 
  • Add dry ingredients to the mixer slowly until fully combined, scraping the sides of the bowl once or twice. 
  • Optional: This is where I separate the dough into 3 bowls and add different treats. One with chocolate chips & pecans, one with white chocolate chips and one with peanut butter chips. Everyone is happy!
  • Scoop using a cookie scoop or form a ball of about 2 Tbsp of dough and place on cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. Tops will still be soft. 
  • Cool on baking sheet 1 minute, then transfer to wire racks to cool. 

Notes

I really love a frozen cookie. These are great frozen. Or freeze dough after scooping into balls and bake whenever you prefer warm cookies!
