Double chocolate cranberry chunkies

Duncan picked and made these cookies for FHE tonight. He did a good job for his first time making cookies by himself. They were quite tasty. He did leave egg shell in there, but I think I managed to get them all out.

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks or chips
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries or dried tart cherries (we used cranberry)
  • additional granulated sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in small bowl; set aside. Beat butter and sugars in a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until well blended. Gradually beat in flour until blended. Sir in chocolate chunks and cranberries
  3. Drop dough by level 1/4 cupfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Flatten dough until 2 inches in diameter with bottom of glass that has been dipped in additional granulated sugar. (We didn't make them this big. We just made our normal cookie scoop size. I didn't flatten or sugar the first batch, but Duncan wanted to make them like the recipe, so he flattened the other cookies.
  4. Bake 11 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set. Cool cookies 2 minutes on cookie sheets; transfer to wire racks. Cool completely.
Recipe says it makes 1 dozen 4 inch cookies. I made 2 1/2 to 3 dozen regular sized cookies.
