Sin On a Sheet…

…a cookie sheet, that is. Darkdarkdark chocolate cookies with white and semi-sweet (read:DARK) chocolate chips. If Agent XYZ agrees NOT to send Bingley any more cool Magic Hats, some might just find their way to Kuwait. Or wherever secret agents hang out these days.
UPDATED with foodie photograph for our frenzied fans and check out this week’s Carnival of the Recipes, hosted by Drew at Conservative Friends. Looks and TASTES great, less filling!

A note about the ingredients ~ I tend to tweak things almost immediately, so where a staid, normal staple is called for, if I used something a bit different that affects the taste, I’ve noted it. (Being the tree hugging sister, the fact that the eggs, sour cream, flour etc. is all organic is a given.)
1 c +1 T unsalted butter (Land-o-Lakes baking butter)
1 3/4 c sugar (Florida Crystals natural/organic)
2 lrg eggs
2 t vanilla
1/4 c sour cream
2 c unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 c + 3 T unsweetened cocoa (dutch process)
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
12 oz white chocolate chips
6-8 oz semisweet choc chips (nestle for both)
Oven 350º
1. W/ electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add sour cream, mix thoroughly.
2. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add by thirds to sugar mix in bowl, incorporating well after each addition. Stir in white and dark chips, stir until distributed evenly through.
3. Drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheets (buttered if things tend to stick to yours). Keep batter in fridge in between cookie sheet loadings. Check at 10 minutes. (In my oven they need twelve. You’re looking for cooked but not crispy-crispy.) Pull cookies out, let them rest a minute or two, then remove them to a rack. Let cool completely. These will have a crumbly, brownie-like texture, so don’t be horrified if they break apart a bit. It makes clean-up a snap!
UPDATE: I wanted to take one of those ‘Bone Appetite’ type pics, but there’s a 23 year old vulture in the house. At least you can see that clean-up really is easy.

    Want an Army boonie cap, THS?

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    Oh the humanities!

  4. Why thank you JeffS, I’d be delighted to own one! If you’d be kind enough to pass on my brazen ploy to Agent XYZ, I can be very appreciative…..
    (That JeffS, always a gentleman.)

    JeffS, she can be very appreciative.
    Wink, wink, say no more.

  6. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Once I return to Kuwait (I’m about half way through my R&R), I’ll make immediate contact with Agent XYZ. Count on it.

  7. Mr. Bingley says:

    Agent XYZ…”Deep Gullet”

  8. Mister Summers!! Sniff. I sincerely resemble your implications.

  9. The_Real_JeffS says:

    “Deep Gullet” won’t get a million bucks for a book deal. He’ll just get home made cookies. That’s the better deal!
