I mentioned before that the girls had been working on recipes for the Nancy Drew HER interactive recipe contest. They had time for just one more entry last week, so they whipped up a small batch of these chocolate wonders.
They are a very nice variation of Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookies, with the addition of craisins and pecans. These were fantastic and they disappeared fast.
The name comes from one of the Nancy Drew games. Lulu is a rather obnoxious parrot who loves snacks.
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa
3/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup chopped pecans
2 Tablespoons white chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350.
Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and
vanilla extract. Mix in the flour, baking soda, and cocoa. Fold in the
chocolate chips, cranberries, and nuts. Using a spoon or melon baller,
drop 1-inch balls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for
10 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
