Double Chocolate Cookies

Nope, it’s not quilting. But if you like a cookie while you work on projects, consider this one. I made 4 dozen cookies or so this morning, and they are DEEEEElishus!

Our View From Iowa

by Melanie

This evening a friend will join us for dinner. We debated about menu, considering salmon and asparagus, or homemade pizzas. (We finally figured out how to make a pretty good crust. When paired with basil pesto as the sauce, the result is out of this world!) We finally decided to make chicken soup (I excel at soup) with Jim’s Irish soda bread and salad. That will suit our forecast for temps in the low 40s, with our ever-ready Iowa wind.

No matter what the main course would be, we agreed on cookies and ice cream for dessert.

This recipe makes 4 dozen terrific cookies. Each time I’ve made them the texture has been fabulous, and they freeze well, too.


2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs

2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder

    Sigh… oh for proper bread, pizza crusts and cookies. Still, I’m pretty pleased with my gingernut recipe.
    Funny, I’m good at soup too. I currently have smoky pumpkin, pea & ham and chicken & vegetable in the freezer. The Husband never gets tired of homemade soup to take to work.

        Exactly so! Never boring, easy to make, the only downside is that it’s hard to replicate if you achieve a really spectacular result, since my method is “throw in a bit of this, a bit of that, a shake of the other”…
