will's dirty thirty birthday cookies

 (aka chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips)

my friend and co-worker will recently turned thirty.  he loves sweets and requested something with white chocolate in it.  i thought chocolate cookies would be the perfect vehicle... it is dirty thirty after all!

start by adding flour, cocoa, baking soda, & salt to a medium bowl

mix well and set aside

next add butter and sugar to a large mixing bowl

beat until light and fluffy

add 2 eggs & 2 tsp vanilla extract
beat well

gradually add flour/cocoa mixture
beat until fully combined
add 10-12 oz white chocolate chips
stir in.
drop rounded teaspoons of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet.  bake 8-9 minutes

cool on cookie sheet for 2 min, then transfer to wire rack
