Tuesday Cook Off ~ Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (Levain Bakery Copy Cat Recipe)

This week My Baby Pajamas is featuring the famous Levain Bakery Double Chocolate Chip Cookie from New York (of course it’s a copy cat recipe so who knows if it’s the real thing).   But I will tell you this; these cookies are delicious!   The recipe makes about 12 of the giant double chocolate chip cookies.  However, I didn’t want to have these huge cookies lying around the house so I made the cookies smaller and reduced the cook time.  They turned out perfect!  The cookies are very rich cookies so I could not imagine having a huge cookie.   All I have to say is if you like double chocolate chip cookies, you definitely need to make these, your family will thank you 🙂

Here is the recipe:

Yield: 12 very large cookies
Ingredients:
1 cup (2 sticks) cold, unsalted butter, cubed
1¼ cup sugar
2 large eggs
½ cup dark cocoa powder
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp. coarse salt
1 tsp. baking powder
2½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar.  Beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.  Blend in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed.  Mix in the cocoa powder until well blended.  Add the flour, salt and baking powder to the bowl and mix on low speed just until incorporated.  Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.  Transfer the dough to a work surface and knead briefly by hand to be sure the ingredients are well combined.

Divide the dough into 4 ounce portions (or divide into 12 equal pieces).  Roll each portion of dough into a ball and flatten just slightly into a disc.  Place on the prepared baking sheets, a few inches apart.  Bake 16-20 minutes.  Let cool on the baking sheets 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make 30 smaller cookies:  I measured about 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons of cookie dough onto the baking sheet.  I then cooked the cookies about 12-14 minutes.  If you want the cookies gooey I would cook around 12 to 12 1/2 minutes.

Enjoy baking!
