Wow! It's been too long! OK, so honestly, I think I took a very long sabbatical from cooking! Just ask my family! I, like most mom's with small children, feel like a short order cook. One wants a grilled cheese, one cereal, the other corn dog, spaghetti, quesadillas! You get the picture, or perhaps live with this madness! So, instead of cooking, we ate out! Well, I'm sick of eating out! So, here we go again! Thanks to Pinterest, I have found so many wonderful recipes! SIDE NOTE... Have you discovered Pinterest yet? If not, get right on it! NOW!
Here is a cookie recipe that I found and LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! Trust me! MAKE THESE RIGHT NOW! You're welcome!
(see above link for recipe and picture info.)
3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. bittersweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.
Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Using a standard-sized cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges. (The tops will not brown, but do NOT cook longer than ten minutes.)
Let cool, on the sheet, on a wire rack for five minutes. Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely. Makes approximately 3 dozen. Try not to eat them all.
