In our family, Jamey gets the prize for the best chocolate chip cookies ever- here's the Cook's Illustrated-Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, but we simply call them:
Jamey's Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups +2 T unbleached flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted & cooled
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
coarse salt for sprinkling
So-mix together the dry ingredients; next mix sugar and butter together; beat in egg, yolk, vanilla. Add dry ingredients and beat at low speed until combined. Stir in chips.
Roll golf ball size dough and place 2 inches apart. Cook 12-15 minutes @ 325 degrees
Pull the cookies out of the oven and sprinkle tops with any coarse salt. Salt on cookies? Jamey says that's the way Noah likes them-and we all agree!
As expected, Jamey and I hosted visitors every afternoon that week, women who came to cuddle Adalyn-and talk. . .
I got to serve the cookies!
