a Classic, cookies and milk on George Hirsch Lifestyle
Chocolate treat, under 30 minutes - mixing and baking. But can you wait 24 hours? Probably not, but just save a few because these cookies actually taste even better a few days after baked. Eyes-go-wide open on the first bite. Try my recipe for yourself and you'll agree. For best results use this good quality cocoa.

1 1/3 cups butter
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 each eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
2/3 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 Tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
1 cup mini chocolate chips, semi sweet, or chopped chocolate
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar one minute, or until creamy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating lightly after each.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with milk beating at low speed about 1 minute, or just until blended.
Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by heaping 2 Tablespoons spoonful on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 350F for 10 to 12 minutes. Cookies will still appear soft and moist when baked, but firm up on cooling.
