Chocolate Lover's Dream Cookies

I was rooting through the archives the other day, and stumbled upon the August 2009 issue of Taste of Home magazine and this recipe. Because I consider myself something of a cookie aficionado, I had to give these a try.  As with most cookie recipes (I am seldom disappointed in a cookie no matter how simple and unassuming) I was glad that I did. They are quick, easy, and garnered two thumbs up from our end. These do tend to be a bit on the sweet side, so be warned.  But if you hanker for a cookie that is densely chocolate, wonderfully chewy, and decadently sweet, this recipe is definitely for you.  It turned out that they were the perfect accompaniment to an evening cup of coffee, and repeat episode of The Closer.  Brenda Leigh would have loved them.

Chocolate Lover's Dream Cookies
Taste of Home August/September 2009

6 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup white baking chips
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, beat the oil, butter and sugars until well blended.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking powder; gradually add to oil mixture and mix well. Stir in chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 apart onto ungreased baking  sheets. Bake at 350°F for 12-15 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks.
Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
