Stefan’s friends from high school had a little reunion of sorts this past weekend and I did a bunch of baking. Blueberry Muffins, Cinnamon Muffins, Biscotti, and 2 types of yummy cookies.

One is a Brown Sugar Sugar Cookie
and the other is a Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Cookie

Both are delish and super rich. It makes good sense to make them together since one used the yolk and one uses the white of an egg but otherwise, they are an odd pair.

Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Cookie

– Adapted from “America’s Test Kitchen”

1/2 Cu granulated Sugar
1 1/2 Cu flour
3/4 Cu Hersheys Dark Cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/8 tsp salt
1/2 Cu dark corn syrup
1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla extract
12 Tbs unsalted Butter
1/3 Cu Dark Brown Sugar
4 Oz Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Beat at medium speed – butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar
Beat until light and fluffy
Add Corn Syrup, Egg White, and Vanilla
Beat until combined
Add dry ingredients – Flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt
Beat until combined
add Chocolate chips
Drop onto cookie Sheet
bake 11 Min at 374F
Bake until cracks form and inside the cracks looks under-baked

I use the Medium Cookie Scoop because Stefan’s co-workers made fun of my little cookies so I try to make them a little bigger now. Silly reason but there you have it.

This is the scoop I have. If you have some spare time and want to read some very serious reviews on why this is the best cookie scoop on the market, I highly recommend it.

For the Brown Sugar Sugar Cookies I use the small scoop. They are so rich that the bigger scoop is just silly.
