I love to bring cookies to someone’s house because it’s a good reason to make a batch of cookies. If not, I make a full batch and freeze most of the dough for quick cookies later on. I love these cookies because they are filled with lots of great chocolate flavor and are a big hit for anyone who really likes chocolate.

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour, divided
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
3. Using a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Slowly add flour mixture, a little at a time, and mix until just combined.
4. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1 tablespoon flour with chocolate chunks and toss to coat. Add to bowl and just combine. Refrigerate dough for 10 minutes.
5. Using a teaspoon, form dough into rounds and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool.

Makes approximately 18 cookies.
