Double Chocolate Cookies

This is probably one of the best cookie recipes ever! You can make them chewy or crusty. Whatever you like better! In case you hadn't noticed, a lot of what blogs post is just copied from another blog. This is my own personal recipe that I made up myself.

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening (preferably vegetable)
1 cup white sugar
1/2 brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk (I use 1%)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1/4 cup coconut (optional)
1/4 cup dried cherries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a electric mixer combine butter, shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt; blend into the butter mixture. Add 1/2 cup milk or until wet. Mix in the chocolate chips, nuts, coconut and cherries. Drop into balls on a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy with a glass of milk.
