.chocolate chocolate chunk and pine nut cookies.

This month's cookie of the month is a Chocolate Chocolate Chunk w/ Pine Nut cookie. Mmmm. Rich and moist with a light nutty flavor. This one is sure to be a favorite!

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
2 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
3 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup pine nuts

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and mix until well incorporated. Add cocoa powder, baking soda, vanilla, and cinnamon. While on slow speed, add the flour a little at a time until it is all worked in and the dough is not sticky to the touch. If it's sticky, add a little more.

Once dough is not sticky, add your chocolate chips (you can use white, milk, or semi sweet chips) and pine nuts.

Using a medium to large ice cream scoop, scoop dough onto baking sheets and bake in a 375* oven for 7-10 minutes or until the tops start cracking a little. Don't overbake or else they'll be dry and hard.

Remove from oven and transfer to cooling racks. Store in an air-tight container (if they last that long!). Makes almost 2 dozen.
