Yes. These cookies are for you! (virtually speaking of course, since they were made last week and have long since been shared and eaten). But I really want to thank you.
And you, and you....and....YOU!
All of you!
Thank so so much for all your emails and comments on yesterdays post! (still going through them!) And also HUGE thankyous to those of you who blogged, facebooked, tweeted and retweeted my little plea for help!
(and sorry that I ever made fun of twitter.....boy does word spread quickly on that thing! I am now a believer.)
I really wish I could send these to everyone....the best I can do is share the recipe....
I should first say that every single time I make chocolate chip cookies, I change up the recipe....always looking for that "perfect" cookie. I was really really happy with the results this time around....the only thing I think I would change next time is using chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
(adapted from Ashley's recipe)
2 sticks of butter (1c), at room temp
1/2 c white sugar
1 3/4 c brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 c all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 lb chocolate chips/chunks
Cream the butter and the sugars until light. Scrape down the side of the bowl. Continue mixing while adding the eggs one at time. Make sure each egg is incorporated before adding the next. Add the vanilla. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula. Combine the flour, soda and salt in another bowl. With a whisk, stir to combine. With the machine on low, slowly add the flour. Mix until just combined, taking care not to over mix. With a spatula fold in the chocolate.
Drop by spoonful onto parchment lined cookie sheet.
Give a little sprinkle of sea salt before you pop them in the oven......PERFECTION!
Bake at 350° for 11-13 minutes. They should be lightly golden on the outside but still look gooey on the inside.
thank you guys so much! Enjoy!!
psssssst! don't forget--the giveaway ends tonight!!
