Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with pecans and coconut.

Total time:  Approximately 45 minutes.

1/2 c butter (1 stick), softened
1/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c cocoa powder
1/4 c chocolate chips
1 tsp shortening
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 c coconut flakes
1/2 c pecan pieces
1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 360F.

Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.  Set aside.

Melt 1/4 c chocolate chips with shortening in the microwave for one minute, stirring every 20 seconds.  Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugars with the butter until it appears light and fluffy (about 3 minutes by hand).   Add egg and blend until smooth.  Add cocoa powder and vanilla and blend until smooth.  Add melted chocolate and shortening and blend until smooth.

Add flour mixture and mix until just incorporated (40 strokes or less).  Mix in coconut, pecans and chocolate chips.

Bake 10-12 minutes.  Cool on cookie sheet 3 minutes before removing to a wire rack or aluminum sheet to cool completely.

My first round is always 11 minutes exactly, and each successive round is 10 minutes after that.
