    Guinness Chocolate Chunk Cookies

ID:	382439I can always count on recipes from Cuisine at Home to be terrific, and when I saw this one I knew I had to try it for DH. Fortunately we had a few bottles of Guinness in the fridge so I took a break from sewing today and gave them a try.

    DH was a bit concerned about me using 2 of his 3 remaining bottles of Guinness, but after his first
    bite he said, "this recipe is a keeper". I must agree, they are very yummy!

    These cookies bake up nice and fluffly, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. They have a wonderful chocolatey flavor with a hint of the dark Guinness flavor.

    REDUCE
    2 bottles Guinness extra stout (12 oz each)
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar

    WHISK
    2 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or all purpose white)
    1/3 cup dutch process cocoa powder (or regular unsweetened)
    1 tsp. instant espresso powder
    3/4 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. salt

    CREAM
    1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
    1/2 cup shortening
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar

    ADD
    2 eggs, room temperature
    1 tsp. vanilla

    STIR
    2 cups white chocolate
    chunks/chips
    1 cup dark chocolate (or semi-sweet)
    chunks/chips

    Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
    Reduce beer with 1/2 cup brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until syrupy and measures 1/3 cup, 30-45 minutes. Remove syrup from heat; set aside to cool slightly.
    Whisk together flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
    Cream butter, shortening, granulated sugar, and 1/2 cup brown sugar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add beer syrup, eggs, and vanilla; mix to combine.
    Stir flour-cocoa mixture into creamed mixture until flour is incorporated. Fold in white and chocolate chunks/chips until distributed.
    Drop dough by 2 or 3 Tbls scooper onto prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies until edges are set, 12-14 minutes. Let cookies cool 2 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

    Any recipe that calls for Guinness is bound to be tasty.

    I wonder if these could be made without beer? I'm allergic to something in beer.

    You might be able to substitute the beer syrup for another kind of syrup. Otherwise, I would just follow a normal triple chocolate cookie recipe.
