Lisa over at Stop and Smell the Chocolates is having a fall fruit festival. I am re-posting this for the chocolate friday.
This is a Double Chocolate cookie. It is Made with White and Semi Sweet Chocolate. I have found Cooking the Cookies at a Low temp produces a much Softer cookie( like the ones you get in the mall). These cookies are trans fat free, and lower in Saturated fats. Since we are in the Mars Theme Months, we gave it a Martian name. Name after one of our favorite Martian at Mars2112 in New York City. I know she will love this Cookie, after all she is the Empress of Mars. Every time we go to Mars2112 she tells us how she loves Earthling Chocolate, it's the best in the galaxy!

Sift dry ingredients together, Add to Shortening/egg mixture- 1/3 cup at a time blend on low speed of mixture for 10seconds, continue pattern til all flour mixture is used.
Fold in Chocolate chunks.
roll about 1 Tablespoon of dough in hand-place on cookies sheet lined with a Silicone mat 2 inches apart ( if you do not have a silicone cooking mat, ask for one for Mothers' day or buy yourself one, it is the best investment I ever made!)
