Triple Chocolate Cookies

This is my most popular cookie recipe, and I’ve used it to make a lot of people happy.  Sometimes I make them big, and often I make small bite-sized cookies for larger events.  Either way, this is how you win friends and put smiles on their faces!

Ingredients (makes 2 dozen large, or 3 dozen small): 

1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
6 tbsp. butter
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter, bittersweet chocolate, and semisweet chocolate in a saucepan over low heat.  Alternatively, you can melt it in a glass bowl in the microwave by heating for one minute on high, stirring, and heating in thirty second increments until mixture is nearly melted.  Then stir until completely melted.  Using a mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the eggs and sugar together until smooth and pale in color.  Add the cooled melted chocolate and vanilla, and blend. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add to the chocolate mixture and stir until combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Scoop the batter into mounds on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, placing the scoops 2” apart.  Bake 10-12 minutes, until the tops begin to crack and look glossy.  Cool cookies for ten minutes, and then transfer to a baking rack to cool completely.
