Recipe - Double Chocolate Cookies

Yields:  Approximately 25 cookies

INGREDIENTS:

250g butter (salted),  room temperature
80g caster sugar ( I used organic brown sugar, blend in food processor to get the fine sugar)
1 egg yolk (from large eggs)
2 tsp vanilla extract or paste 

270g all purpose flour or cake flour 
15g cocoa powder
1 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp baking soda  (I used Bob's Red Mill Baking Soda)

380g semi sweet dark chocolate chips 
80g hazelnuts, toasted and chopped (optional)

Some kosher salt (optional for topping)

Utensils:
Baking trays, lined with parchment papers

METHOD:
  1. Preheat oven to 190C (top and bottom heat).  Line the baking tray with parchment paper.  Set aside.
  2. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda into a bowl and stir in salt.  Set aside.
  3. In a bowl of electric mixer, beat together butter and brown sugar until fluffy with the paddle attachment at medium speed about 5 minutes. Add in egg yolk, then vanilla extract and beat till well combine.  You may use hand mix if you do not have an electric mixer.
  4. At low speed, gradually add in flour mixture and mix until form a smooth dough.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts.
  6. Scoop up a rounded tablespoon and place on the prepared baking trays, leaving about 3 inches apart from each dough.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 12 - 15 minutes until edges of the cookie are firm and the cookies have turned to darker colour. 
  8. Remove from the oven and sprinkle some kosher salt on top if you like.
  9. Let cool on baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.  Store in airtight container.



GENERAL NOTES:

BUTTER
When the recipe asks for room temperature butter, it refers to soft and pliable butter, but not looks shinny or greasy. It is still cool to touch and easy to spread.  During creaming stage of butter and sugar, it will create air pockets in the butter and will yield light cookies or bakes.  If the butter is warm, it will not create air pockets and make your cookies harder.

The best way to get room temperature butter is to cut the butter (from refrigerator) into chunks. Leave it outside room temperature (my tropical climate here is around 28 - 30 C) for 15 minutes or until you can get an indent when you press with your finger. 

Creaming Butter and Sugar process has to be done slowly at low medium speed and not more than medium speed or the butter will heat up.

FLOUR
Cake Flour has a lower protein content and make the cookies a bit softer.  All purposed flour make the cookies more crispy as it content more protein.  

OVEN TEMPERATURE AND BAKING TIME
Do note that the baking temperature and timing provided are what works for my oven and should also be regarded as a guide only. Every oven behaves a little differently, so please adjust accordingly for your oven.

  1. Hi, can I omit the cocoa powder to make it an original chocolate chip cookies? If yes, should I replace with 15g flour?

    1. Hi, Thanks for reading this recipe. Yes, you can omit. It doesn't really matter whether you replace with flour or without. Your cookies will be more buttery if without.

      Cheers :)
