Da Lat Double Chocolate Cookies
We're partnering up with the fine folks at One Mighty Mill to step up your baking game with freshly milled flour and ethically sourced fresh spices! Adapted from their recipe for Mama Julie's Chocolate Chip Cookies, our take triples down on the chocolate flavor with our Da Lat Signature Blend and cocoa powder in addition to plenty of chocolate chunks. One Mighty Mill's Fresh-Milled All Purpose Flour offers a rich, full, and nutty flavor foundation that lets the flavors of coffee, cacao, star anise, and cinnamon shine.
Makes about 16-18 large cookies
8 oz butter, softened (2 sticks)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla paste
2 1/3 cups OMM all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons Da Lat Spice
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (1 12-oz. bag)
Heat the oven to 375F and set a rack to the center position. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a stand-mixer using the paddle attachment or in a large bowl using a handmixer, cream the butter with the sugars on high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides using a spatula, reduce to medium speed, and beat in the eggs and vanilla.
In another bowl, combine the flour, cacao powder, baking soda, salt, and Da Lat Spice. While mixing on low speed, add first the flour mixture and then the chocolate chips to the mixture to combine; do not overmix!
Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into your hands and roll into balls. Transfer to the prepared baking sheets, being sure to space them evenly. Using your palm, press each ball to flatten them slightly. Bake until the cookies set and become lightly browned at the edges, about 12 minutes.
Let sit for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Hold in an air-tight container for up to 1 week. Enjoy!
