Wow it's been a ridiculously long time since I've updated! And I've been putting off updating because I feel like I have to come back with something super exciting, which I don't have. I've been debating whether to continue with my food blog or start more of a daily food/healthy living type blog where I'd still share recipes. Hm. I guess I'm not sure how much I'm comfortable sharing in such a public place. (Healthy living blogs seem to share a lot more just due to the nature of them though I know it's up to me how much I want to share.)
Anyway, so I'm married now! Hurray. :) Everything went really well. We get our official photographer photos back next weekend so perhaps I'll share some then.
I know I said I didn't have anything really exciting to share, but actually these cookies are stupendously delicious and that's exciting. I'm sure many of you have made chocolate dough cookies, and I usually don't like them, but there's something about these that is completely perfect. The 3 kinds of chocolate definitely help - cocoa powder, semisweet chips and white chocolate chips. Usually I give away most of my sweet baked goods but I kept a bunch of these for myself.
I have a ton of food photos back all the way to October that I've yet to post about, so I was thinking about challenging myself to post everyday for a couple of weeks to catch up. I'm not sure how that will go though. I've also stopped taking photos of everything I make, unless it's really yummy. Alright, onto the recipe!
Oh and I know this photo is totally out of season now but I have to share Abby with her reindeer outfit (antlers and a red collar with bells)!

Adapted from The Complete Canadian Living Baking Book: The Essentials of Home Baking
Makes about 50 cookies
1 cup butter, unsalted
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder (I ran out of regular cocoa so I used 3 tbsp regular, and 5 tbsp Dutch process)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate
Prepare baking sheet; set aside.
In large bowl, beat butter with granulated and brown sugars until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in vanilla.
In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture, stirring to combine. Stir in semisweet and white chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake in middle of 350F oven until firm to the touch and no longer glossy, about 8 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely.
Note: I baked 1 tray at a time for 8 minutes. If you do 2 trays maybe you'd need to bake them longer. The original recipe suggests 12 minutes.
