Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies {Egg-free, Dairy-free}

New recipe!  I took a meal for some close friends that just had a new baby.  The dad really only likes sweets if chocolate is involved.  I was trying to decide if I should include a dessert with my meal and if so what.  I decided to try to adapt my Chocolate Chip Cookie (EF) recipe to see if I could make it into Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I thought of this as I was working out this morning.  That was a little counter productive, especially considering how many of these cookies I sampled!  These are something between a brownie and a cookie!


Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies 

½ c unsalted butter
½ c vegetable shortening
½ c sugar
1 c brown sugar
1 t vanilla
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
½  t salt
½ c cocoa powder
2 c flour
3-4 T milk
1 ½ c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375o.  Cream together the butter, shortening, both sugars and vanilla.  Add the baking powder, baking soda and salt mixing constantly.  Slowly mix in the coco powder.  Then mix in flour.  Add milk one tablespoon at a time, until dough starts to stick together.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet.  Bake for about 8 minutes.  Do not overcook.  Let cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheet before removing.  
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

*Dairy-free notes:  I haven’t tried to make these dairy-free, but one of my readers made my regular chocolate chip cookies dairy-free.  See her comment on that post.  She used butter flavored shortening in place of the butter and shortening combination used in my recipe.  She also replaced the milk with soy milk.  You would also need to ensure the chocolate chips used were non-dairy.  Please let me know if you give it a try!
