Quick And Easy Chocolate Cookies

You are here:  > > Easy Chocolate Cookies

I came up with this chocolate cookie recipe, made this way, because we were watching a movie and I wanted a cookie. I did not want to drag out the Kitchen Aid, bowls for mise en place, measuring cups or my scale. So, I thought, if I mix everything in the food processor then the only dirty dishes are the bowl of the processor, a 1/4 cup measuring cup, and a sheet-pan.

I began thinking about how to do cookies based on using one stick of butter. Mostly because I didn't want to measure out any butter, I just wanted to unwrap a stick of butter and go.

These are incredibly fast to make and very good. They have a tender cake like interior and they're soft and chewy with a lot of chocolate flavor.

Chocolate cookies are a wonderful thing. They really hit all of those comfort food cravings that we have for dessert. They are chocolaty, sweet, and savory and the cinnamon in them gives them a subtle sharp note that just makes you smile inside and out.
