Nothing about this recipe is healthy….just giving you a head’s up. But sometimes, you need real, homemade chocolate chip cookies in your life. This past weekend, I needed them.
I actually had good intentions to cook Paleo chocolate chip cookies, but that flew by the waist side :). Maybe I’ll still try the Paleo version now that I’ve stuffed my face their buttery, sugary cousin.
I found this recipe on Pinterest and the only thing I changed was that I used dark chocolate chips instead of semi sweet. I just love dark chocolate…and it’s healthy right?
Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies
(recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything)
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted but cooled off
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 cups of dark chocolate chips (or semi sweet)
First, I combined the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
Then, in a larger bowl, I mixed together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. This is the point when I realized this recipe is NOT healthy. Not even close. Paula Deen would be proud.
Next, I added the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
Once it was blended nicely, I slowly added in the flour mixture.
Now for the good part: chocolate chips! I slowly mixed these in with a wooden spoon. There was actually a ton of them.
I didn’t have a bite of dough! Aren’t you proud? I seriously think cookie dough is better than an actual cookie. I don’t know why…but it’s so good! I resisted though…it wasn’t easy…but I did it.
I rolled up the dough in bigger than normal balls and placed them on a greased cookie sheet. Honestly, I couldn’t believe I had to grease this thing considering how much butter was in the cookies. I set the oven to 325 and cooked them for about 12 minutes.
These cookies are amazing. Seriously. If you love chocolate chip cookies or need to making something for a party, give these a try-they’re so good!
There’s probably nothing better than a warm chocolate chip cookie and a glass of cold milk. Mmm.
Somehow, I’ve managed not to eat them all! We still have a couple left. I may have had part of one for breakfast this morning though…
What’s your favorite kind of cookie? Any good recipe recommendations?
