Chewy Chocolate Cookies…Nom Nom Nom

8 Oct

Years of watching Sesame Street as a child has ingrained some very important facts on life in me. Rule number one, when count numbers out loud one must laugh obnoxiously between every number. Rule number 2, cookies should be eaten by the hand full and smeared all over your face (until health concerned parents threatened cookies monster with a carb restricted diet to say that cookies are only a sometimes food). We all know that is a lie because cookies are good all the time.  Lastly, never mess with the bird.

Going back to cookies, I strive to keep cookie monster’s original message alive. Eat those cookies like there is no tomorrow. To help with this I have here a recipe for a thin chewy chocolate chip cookie that you can’t help but eat them by the handful. Fresh out of the oven, these cookies are soft and chewy and perfect with that cold glass of milk. This is definitely one of the best cookie recipes I have tried to date. Chewy chocolate chip cookies 

Makes a lot of cookies, I really don’t know the count. Maybe about 4 dozens?

3 cups flour (2 cups all purpose and 1 cup wheat)

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 sticks unsalted butter (must be room temp)

1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

3 large eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1/4 C smooth peanut butter

2  cups semisweet mini chocolate chips

Directions:

1 Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl

2. Cream together soft room temperature butter with sugar until pale and fluffy.

3. Mix in eggs, vanilla and peanut butter to egg and sugar mix.

4. Add in flour, baking soda and salt mixture slowly until well mixed.

5. Mix in chocolate chip and let dough sit in refrigerator for 20 minuets

6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with wax or parchment paper.

7. Scoop about a tablespoon of dough at least 2 inches apart. Bake cookies for 10-13 minuets or until golden brown.

8. When done, move the whole wax/parchment sheet with the cookies on it to a cooling rack. Careful with moving the cookies, try sliding the whole sheet on the to rack instead of lifting them.

9. Let them cool then eat or like me you can eat them right away.

The Oven Double feature: Part 2

After have a food-gasum with the sweet and tangy ribs, I indulged in some Honey Lemon Lavender shortbread cookies in the after glow. Every great meal needs a sweet finish and these crunchy cookies are good after dinner with some vanilla ice cream, with your afternoon tea or really any time you want a sweet snack. These cookies are not the healthiest things to eat, but remember moderation is the key. We all deserve a good guilty treat every now and then. The brightness of the lemon and the floral sent of the lavender feels like a spring with it light and refreshing taste.  Continue reading
