Happy February friends! The first post of the month (hopefully I find time for many more), is for a classic. If you want to wow your valentine, or eat cookie dough until you vomit, look no further. There is nothing else profound to say about these cookies. Some people boast their chocolate chip cookies as the world’s best. I’ve even found a creative little post about the world’s worst. These are just a straight up delicious little treat full of milk chocolate and sea salt. The dough is delightful, but it’s sole purpose is to hold the chocolate togher. Let’s get our Friday fix!
4 oz of unsalted butter
¾ cup of light brown sugar
¼ cup of white sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp of vanilla
¾ tsp of baking soda
½ tsp of sea salt + more for dusting
1½ cup of flour
12 oz milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350° and line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking mat.
Beat butter and sugar until smooth. Mix in egg and vanilla.
Add in baking soda and salt.
Slowly add flour, mixing until just combined.
Fold in chocolate chips using a spatula.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheet and dust with coarse sea salt. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are golden brown.
Let cookies cool for five minutes before transferring to wire cooling rack.
Easter is Sunday. Yes it’s, the resurrection of our Lord and savior, but also… it’s arguably one of the biggest brunch days of the year. If you’re a brunch overachiever like me, you need this recipe. It’s a classic, and fairly basic, recipe. That being said, it tastes pretty fancy and your guests will be […]
I feel like I should be embarrassed that I have to sing Gwen everytime I spell banana. I ain’t no hollaback girl, so it is what it is. On Friday I babysat my niece. After talking her way into a new baker Barbie (I couldn’t be prouder), she wanted to bake for real. The ingredient […]
I’m baaaaack. My sincerest apologies for the long lapse in writing and recipes. I was preoccupied with birthdays, the holidays, a honeymoon, and running off to get hitched. Needless to say, I’ve been a little busy. Now I’m back in the Midwest making a giant mess of my kitchen and saving the occasional life. My […]
It’s been mentioned on here before that I am a crazy Christmas lady. My tree is up and our stockings have been hung by the chimney with care. The neighbors don’t know I’m a stone cold weirdo, so I’m waiting to decorate the outside until it’s a little more “acceptable.” Since the holiday season has […]
Sure, this cherry apple pie is delicious. Let’s be real though, the thing that makes it one of my favorites is the fact that there is no blind baking required! Praise be. You can use any cherries and apples that tickle your fall fancy, but I recommend using sweet cherries and tart apples or tart […]
Another day, another excuse to use the kitchen torch. I know I will one day go down in a blaze of glory. What can I say? These gooey, toasty, chocolate campfire brownies are just worth the risk. This the second chocolatey post of the day, and that makes me a happy camper (pun intended). I […]
Yesterday was National Chocolate Day. Bless this beautiful country that lets us have an entire day dedicated to chocolate. In honor of one of the best days of the year, I whipped up a chocolate cream pie. The good news is this pie is good any day, so don’t feel like you have to wait […]
October is coming to a close, so I had to squeeze in another apple recipe before it becomes all about the Christmas baking. Brace yourselves, because I’m the person who puts their Christmas tree up on November 1st. I have always found donuts to be daunting, and therefore never given them a shot. I’m glad […]
Recently I decided to embrace my lack of decorating skills. I made some spoooooooooooky cupcakes. These little guys are kind of like Burger after his latest trip to the groomer… so ugly they’re cute. We all know it’s what’s inside that counts (I keep telling myself this through tears of laughter every time I look […]
We all know I love a good mashup, whether it is Burger the bernedoodle or a pumpkin apple pie. The sugardoodle is my latest love. I have always been a chocolate chip cookie kind of girl, or a monster cookie kind of girl, or even a white chocolate macadamia cookie kind of girl… but I […]
