Double Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am a sucker for chocolate, especially double chocolate chip cookies so I love these cookies. They are lightly sweet and buttery, but heavily chocolaty - just the way a cookie should be. Enjoy! 

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder (I used cacao powder)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 - 1 cup dark (60-70%) chocolate chunks
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. 

Beat the butter and sugar with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture, beating until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts (if using).

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 1 1/2 inches apart onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes. Cool on the pan for 2 minutes or until firm. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Make about 2 dozen.
