- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg, cold
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions See How It's Made
- Position a rack in the middle of the oven --
- Preheat the oven to 325*.Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Put 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips in a heatproof container or the top of a double boiler and place it over, but not touching, a saucepan of barely simmering water (or the bottom of the double boiler).
- Stir the chocolate chips until melted and smooth --
- Remove from the water and set aside.
- Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt into a medium bowl and set aside.
- In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter, brown sugar,and the granulated sugar until smoothly blended, about 1 minute.
- Stop the mixer and scrape the sides of teh bowl as needed during mixing.
- On low speed, mix in the melted chocolate chips until blended.
- Add the egg and vanilla, mixing until blended, about 1 minute.
- Add the flour mixture, mixing just until it is incorporated.
- Mix in the remaining 2 cups chocolate chips.
- Using an ice scoop or measuring cup with 1/4 cup capacity, scoop mounds of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies 3" apart.
- Bake the cookies one sheet at a time, until they crack slightly on top and a toothpick inserted in the center of a cookies comes out with moist crumbs, not wet batter, about 18 minutes.
- If the toothpick penetrates a chocolate chips, test another spot --
- Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then use a wide metal spatula to transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- The outside of the cookies will become crisp as the cookies cool.
- The cookies can be stored in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 4 days.(they won't last that long).
