WMD Chip Cookies

So, these cookies really make me wish I took better photos. Don't get me wrong, I love taking pictures, and I try, but I'm just not very good, and I'm using a point and shoot. It sounds like I'm making excuses, and to be honest, I am. But I'm hoping that by Christmas I'll have talked my husband into getting me a spankin new camera and some magic wand to wave over photos to make them rock. Maybe then I'd quit getting denied entry to certain photo food hot spots. That being said, these cookies are pretty good! In my opinion they're a mix of a brownie, a cake and a cookie. The richness of a brownie, the texture of a fudgey cake, and the shape of a cookie with the delicious chunks. I've decided to call these WMD Chip cookies because they contain white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate all in one. Hello delicious!

WMD Chip Cookies Printable
adapted from Bakers Royale

4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
8 tablespoon butter, softened
2 large eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa
1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup toasted pecans

Oven to 325. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, espresso powder and salt. Set aside .
Melt the butter and bittersweet chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat and add the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, on medium speed beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Bring speed down to low and beat in the chocolate mixture until well combined.
Add the flour to the mixture and gently fold with a wooden spoon until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop 1-1/2 tablespoon of dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Say what you will about your photography skills, but I think these cookies look gorgeous and delicious (and I'm sure taste gorgeous and delicious, too). You should see the photos I usually take - my hubby says I somehow nearly always wind up with too much sky and not enough subject, even with a 'point and shoot' easy/user-friendly type of digital camera. Believe me, your photos are waaaay better than mine.

Will definitely try this recipe out in the very near future. I love chocolate and I love cookies (they're called bikkies over here) and so I think that means 'must bake these...soon.'

The texture sounds amazing. That's what a good cookie should be in my opinion. And hey, I'm with you too with regards to the camera. I'm working with a regular camera that costs next to nothing but I still try to make them look nice. I think your photos turn out lovely :)

Your cookies look great! I like the sound of fudgey and the WMD for the name of it is awesome!
