Triple Chocolate Cookies

Hello, with the name of this cookie, who wouldn't want to make it? :) This is another newbie cookie that I tried this year! With three different kinds of chocolate it is sure to satisy that chocolate craving and definitely your sweet tooth! YUMMY!!

Triple Chocolate Cookies
(recipe found at www.foodnetwork.com)
Yields: 2 dozen

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not Dutch processed)
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
1/3 cup dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
2/3 cup chopped pecans, optional

Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl, mash together the butter and sugars with a fork until well combined. (I don't see why you couldn't just use your mixer for this part, but I am a rule follower, so I used the fork :) Add the oil and egg and beat until creamy. Mix in the vanilla.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, cocoa powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Stir in the dark chocolate, milk chocolate and the pecans and mix well. Using a tablespoon, scoop the batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool.

Instead of dark chocolate and milk chocolate, coarsely chopped, I used dark chocolate and semi sweet chocolate chips. Save yourself some chopping! :) Also, if I am going to go to the work to make cookies, I am definitely not going to just make 2 dozen cookies, so go for it all - make it a double batch like I did! :)
