1 Softball and Ghirardelli Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Nate and I love playing softball with our sweet Sunday school class! We have so many fun memories from the past two years and have enjoyed spending time with old friend and getting to know new ones! It is no secret that when (and if) the Lord blesses Nate and me with kids, I will RELISH in bringing snacks to my kids games! . . . Providing the softball team with goodies is just a way to get my "fix" until that day comes! This picture is from last year and we are missing numerous people :-( I'll have to take a more current picture tomorrow!
Ok, Flipside! Here is what you have to look forward to tomorrow! (if Nate doesn't eat them all tonight!)

CALLING ALL CHOCOLATE LOVERS! :-) These cookies are NOT your normal slice and bake. . . but the extra effort goes a long way. . . because they are SO chocolaty and you will be CRAVING a glass of milk with the first bite! YUM-MY!


1 bag (11.5 oz) Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
6 Tbsps (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 bag (12 oz) Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup (4 oz) chopped walnuts
In double boiler over hot water, melt the bittersweet chocolate chips and butter. In large bowl with electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until thick, stir in chocolate mixture. In small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder; stir into chocolate mixture. Gently mix in semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts. Using a sheet of plastic wrap, form dough into two logs, each 2 inches in diameter and about 8 inches long. As dough will be very soft, use plastic wrap to hold dough tin log shape. wrap tightly. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap dough, with sharp knife, cut into 3/4 - inch slices. Place slices 1 1/2 inches apart on greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until shiny crust forms on top but interior is still soft. Cool on baking sheet.
Makes 2 dozen.
