Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies [Oct. 22nd, 2006|08:11 pm]
Cooking is passion


or - as I call them - "calory cow pats". I'm not sure if I've already posted this recipe but - hell! - winter is coming and we all need a hypodermic extra coat ;)

125 gr unsalted butter
6 tbsp brown sugar
6 tbsp white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (I used a whole vanilla... uhm, what's it called? pod?)
1 large egg
1 cup (240 ml) plus 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup (6 ounces/180-200 g) chopped chocolate (bittersweet is best)
1 cup (3 1/2 ounces/100 g) chopped walnuts/pecan/whatever

Beat butter, sugars, salt and vanilla until well combined, beat in the egg and beat a few more seconds. Stifle flour and baking soda and mix it with the wet ingredients until absorbed. Stir chocolate and nut pieces into dough.

Use an ice-cream scooper (1 1/2 inches diameter), form balls and drop them about 3 inches apart on a baking plate. Bake for 9-12 minutes at 190°C until edges turn darker. Let sit for 5 mins, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Just made them a couple of days ago. It's horrible, both hubby and I can't stay away from them... *ack* ;)
