We baked!

Has and I baked some cookies to take to the festival we are at today.

 I followed this recipe from Martha Stewart

You will need:

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
8 ounces good quality milk chocolate (half coarsely chopped for melted, half cut into 1/4" chunks)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Melt the coarsely chopped chocolate with the butter and then allow it to cool.
  3. Beat the sugar, eggs and vanilla in the mixer. Pour in the melted chocolate, then fold in the flour until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
  4. Set the oven to preheat to gas mark 3 or 160 degree and then use a 1 1/2 inch ice cream scoop (or a large spoon) to drop dough onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. Cookies will still be soft. Makes about 3 dozen.
Our cookies actually turned out to be quite big because we used a lot of mixture per cookie.
They were delicious!
