Not sure where I originally found this recipe but it has been a staple in my household. Whenever we're in the mood for cookies I whip these up. They're very easy, bake quickly, and composed of ingredients that you likely already have on hand.

Bake

Ingredients

2 stick
butter
1 c
sugar
1
egg
2 1/4 c
flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/3 c
cocoa powder
splash of milk
milk and/or white chocolate bars not chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F).
2
Dice up the chocolate bars into smaller pieces. Set aside.
3
Mix butter and sugar. Add the egg. Mix well.
Add in all dry ingredients & mix. This should be a really thick sticky batter. Add a dash of milk, to thin it out ever so slightly. Add in all the chocolate pieces, and stir to incorporate.
4
Roll cookies into balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. These cookies are meant to be big, but you can make them any size you'd like.
5
Bake for EXACTLY 11 minutes. Baking time is crucial for this recipe. Note: They will not look done when you take them out. Remove from oven and allow to cool sufficiently. If the cookies are not properly cooled they will fall apart.
