Inside Out Cookies

Inside Out Cookies are like a chocolate chip cookie--except opposite--chocolate on the base and white chips in the middle. These cookies didn't win any prizes at my party and there's still a lot of them left, but I thought they were pretty good. More like a brownie than a cookie, these cookies are kind of time consuming. I think I might have overcooked them because I felt they still looked like dough balls even though the tops were cracked. If you see this, they are probably done. You might want to bake just a few first to get an idea of how long this takes in your oven.

The Recipe

1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
6 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped with a serrated knife
4 Tbls. butter
2 extra-large eggs
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350
1. In a separate bowl whisk the flour and baking powder, set aside
2. Over some steaming water in a double boiler (or similar) melt chocolate and butter together, stirring until smooth. Set aside to cool.
3. In the mixer, mix eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla together for ELEVEN (11-13) minutes. It will get really light colored, thick and fluffy.
4. Pour in the chocolate and beat about 2 minutes until incorporated
5. Fold in the flour mixture and the white chips
6. Line baking sheets with parchment and drop Tablespoon sized balls onto the sheets, these don't really spread so you can crowd them.
7. Bake 10-12 minutes or less until cookies are cracked on top but still look ooey gooey
