Today’s Forecast: 99% Chance of Cookies

Not only is connecting with local businesses a great way for us to support our communities while providing exclusive deals and services to our residents, but it’s also the best way we know of to score delicious cookie recipes – especially with Denver’s beloved Cookie Fix on our list.

Cookie Fix is known for their city-wide delivery, which made it easy for us to surprise our Union Denver residents with these fresh baked gourmet treats. It tuns out that they loved them so much that they now want to make them in their own fully furnished, cookie-ready kitchens, so we just had to ask owners Kelly and Andrew for a recipe. This double-chocolate delight is the perfect combination of crispy outside and gooey inside, making it the ultimate cookie lover’s dream.

Double Chocolate Cookies

Makes: 12 large cookies

Ingredients:
1 cup unsalted butter, cold, diced into cubes
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 large eggs, cold
1/3 cup Hershey’s Special Dark Unsweetened Cocoa powder
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cake flour
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-12 oz bags semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees convection bake or 425 degrees regular bake.
2. Place butter cubes and sugars in a bowl of stand mixer or large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed for 1-2 minutes until butter breaks up and begins to blend with sugars.
3. Add eggs, one at a time, just until mixed. Stop the mixer and add unsweetened cocoa, mixing until blended on medium speed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
4. Stop the mixer. Add all-purpose flour, cake flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt to the bowl. Pulse the mixer on low speed until the wet and dry ingredients are combined. Scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
5. Mix in chocolate chips on low until incorporated throughout.
6. Using a kitchen scale, measure out 4 oz portions of dough and roll into a ball. No need to refrigerate the dough if you plan on baking them right away, but if cookies sit too long at room temperature, they will not hold their shape while baking.
7. Place 4-5 cookies on a baking sheet at least 3 inches apart.
8. Bake for 5-7 minutes. It’s important to know how your oven cooks. (We use an oven thermometer) The cookies are done when they are no longer wet. Be careful not to over bake!
9. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 min and then transfer to a wire rack.
10. Eat & enjoy.
