Chocolate chip cookies can be tricky.
Most recipes leave your cookies looking flat and deflated.
When I found this recipe I never went back to my old recipes again.
My little helper often gets more ingredients on the counter and floor than in the bowl.
When that happens he just looks at me and shrugs his, “oh well” look.
Then I kiss him because he’s seriously the cutest.
Mix, mix, mix.
Now pay attention…this is the most important part…
You need lots and LOTS of these. Whatever the recipe says, add more.
We go for Semi-sweet Nestle Tollhouse Morsels (for my coupon friends…click here for some Nestle Tollhouse Coupons).
My sous chef says it this way, “They be de-lish-ish good.” (We sneak them and eat right out of the bag throughout the week).
Chocolate chip cookies aren’t rocket science but you do need good tools to help you achieve a successful cookie.
If you don’t have a cookie scoop, get one. It will make each cookie uniform (aka pretty) but also ensure that all your cookies bake the same…no under-baked or over-baked.
I also prefer parchment paper over cooking spray.
I don’t want any added ingredients that aren’t on my recipe.
As soon as you see the first sign of golden-brown dusting appear…pull them babies out.
Once cooled you’d better package them up to share quick or I guarantee you will eat to point of loathing yourself. Look at dem Nestle chocolate chips…can’t resist them.
And neither will the person whom you give them to.
Another trick of mine…
I wrap some cookie dough up in wax paper, tie a bow around it, and give it as a gift.
Then if the recipient has a hankering for a midnight sweet treat they can bake just 1-2 anytime they want (or just eat the whole brick of cookie dough like my boys do).
I found the original recipe on Stephmodo and adapted it just a bit to my taste.
And just because I don’t want Santa to go without cookies when he comes to your house I’ll be hosting a giveaway for $10. cash-ola (via Paypal) on my Instagram account so you can buy all the ingredients to make your own cookies.
So go there.
Santa will thank you.
