World Peace Cookies

World Peace Cookies
I had a difficult time with these because I used regular chocolate chips instead of mini, so when I cut the log it fell apart and basically had to reshape the cookies.  Only made about 18 cookies instead of the 36 intended.

1 1/4 cup AP flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 t. baking soda
11 T unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 t. fine sea salt
1 t. vanilla
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda together.  In a bowl, beat butter on medium speed until soft and creamy.  Add both sugars, salt, and vanilla and beat for 2 minutes.  Turn off mixer.  Add sifted dry ingredients, pulsing at low speed.  Continue to mix until the flour disappears into the dough; dough might be a bit crumbly.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Split dough in half.  Shape each half into logs that are 1 1/2 inches in diameter.  Wrap logs in plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 325F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Slice logs into rounds that are 1/2 inch thick; if rounds crack (or fall apart) reshape and pinch bits back onto each cookie.  Place each round with 1-inch between them on sheet.  Bake for 12 minutes, one sheet at at time.  They won't look done but that is how they're supposed to be.  Transfer baking sheets to cooling rack and let rest.  Makes about 36 cookies (or 18 in my case).
