The Chewy Chocolate Cookies Accident

Let me just put this out here: I am the worst baker ever. I am horrible at baking. It doesn't make sense to me, because I've been in quite a few chemistry classes, and I am confident in my measuring and following direction skills. 

Over the weekend, I had a girl's night in with Jen and we did this great experiment compiling a few different recipes (not on purpose), and we ended up with a large batch of quite tasty chocolate cookies. Though I must admit that they're not that visually appealing. 

Chewy Chocolate Cookies
8oz unsalted butter
2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
3 medium sized eggs 
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
8oz chocolate chips
4oz pecans 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Sift flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Beat the butter in as well and add both sugars, sea salt and eggs. Mix until smooth. Add the chocolate chips and the pecans and fold together. 

Drop the dough in 2 in balls on a baking pan, space evenly. Bake for 15 minutes. 

So somehow, all the above directions gave us something that looked like this: 

Not exactly what I expected, for it was almost a complete flat sheet of cookie.

Regardless, they were still crispy due to the thinness and extremely chewy in the centers. Good enough for me!

Serve with milk. 

Bake safely at home, kids!
