This next motto came to me as I was baking cookies:
I believe in big cookies.
I do. There are few things more satisfying than a big cookie, chewy too, with plenty of chocolate chips.
That thought led to this page:
The journaling says, "I believe in big cookies made with a full cup of butter and a whole bag of chocolate chips." Yes, those are my cookies. I make good cookies. I am not being egotistical when I say I am known for them. Here's my recipe:
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup salted butter (the salt is important, and it should be still fairly solid, though not a rock)
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt (yes, include it)
1 12oz. package chocolate chips
(no, there is no vanilla)
Beat 1st four ingredients until smooth. Add flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix until smooth. Stir in chips. Place comfortably sized balls of dough on a cookie sheet, and bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes until golden. Cool for one minute then transfer to a cooling rack. Then die happy.
(Confessions: this recipe is Betty Crocker, sans editorial comments and nuances like salted butter.)
