MELTED AND COOLED BUTTER/SOFTENED GHEE – give that rich buttery flavor.

 Sprinkle in the baking soda and baking powder in order to incorporate it well, evenly all around the entire surface area of the flours. Mix thoroughly. Fold in the chopped chocolate/chocolate chips.
To drop dough onto the ungreased baking sheet, use a small cookie scoop. 

Gently with your palm or the bottom of a small glass, flatten the dough. If desired, top with more chocolate.
