Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Chipotle Cookies

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups smart balance light
2 cups light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups sugar, plus 1/2 cup for topping
1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted
2 teaspoons dried chipotle peppers
8 tablespoons baking powder (egg)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon water
8 ounces of baking chocolate
2 cups chocolate chips

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Chip Chipotle Cookies

  1. Step 1: Line cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. Step 2: Melt 8 ounces of semisweet chocolate in microwave safe bowl; set aside.

  3. Step 3: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  4. Step 4: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

  5. Step 5: In large bowl with an electric mixer beat butter until smooth. Scrape the sides of the bowl as necessary to evenly cream it.

  6. Step 6: Add the sugars, cocoa powder and chipotle peppers and mix again at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.

  7. Step 7: Add eggs, vanilla and water. Beat at medium speed until combined, about 30 seconds.

  8. Step 8: Add slightly cooled melted chocolate and mix again, scraping bowl to evenly mix everything.

  9. Step 9: Add the flour mixture, scraping sides and bottom of the bowl as necessary. When well incorporated, add the chips and mix briefly, about 5 seconds.

  10. Step 10: Refrigerate the dough in the bowl until cool and fudge-like, but not solid, for approximately 1 hour. You can use an ice cream scoop to create large, even sized cookies. These cookie-dough balls can also be frozen at this point, and baked right from the freezer whenever the need arises.

  11. Step 11: When ready to bake, press the tops of the cookie dough-balls into the sugar, and then top with 2 to 3 pieces of dark chocolate chips.

  12. Step 12: Place onto prepared baking sheets, allowing space for the cookies to spread. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.

  13. Step 13: Remove the cookies from the oven when they are still a little underdone. Let set for a few minutes and then transfer to cooling rack.
