Melt-in-Your-Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies

I found this recipe at Carly's Kitchen, who found them at Baking Bites. Carly's photo of the gooey, chocolatey cookie is what made me copy the recipe and finally try them today. They have a kinda crunchy exterior, but the inside is all soft and gooey with this egg-free recipe. I was really craving chocolate after being really good for a while, so this was quite a treat.



Melt-in-Your-Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies
2 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. cocoa powder
2 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
2/3 c. buttermilk
2 c. chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
Melt the butter in a small, microwave safe bowl.
In a large bowl, combine the melted butter (still warm) with cocoa powder and whisk until very smooth. Whisk in sugar, vanilla extract and buttermilk. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until completely mixed in. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop dough in 1-inch balls into prepared baking sheet, leaving about two inches between cookies to allow for spread. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are set around the edges.
Cool for 2-3 minutes on a baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack with a spatula to cool completely.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
