One Sheet of CookiesFood and cooking
One of my favorite birthday gifts was a TARDIS cookie jar. (Thanks, Jack and Caitlin!) I tried to take a picture of mine but it came out poorly, so I will send you over to ThinkGeek to admire it. Anyway, I obviously needed to make it some cookies. I didn't want tons, because I live alone and I wasn't really feeling up to making dozens to bring in to work or whatever. So I adapted a family recipe to make a dozen big cookies, plus a little extra dough for eating raw.
Small Batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup (one stick) softened butter
1. Preheat oven to 350. Cover a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
2. Cream butter and sugar.
3. Mix in dry ingredients, then vanilla and egg.
4. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. (Confession: my walnuts were whole and I am lazy so I just broke them up with my fingers as I was adding them.)
5. Divide dough into twelve lumps and place on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt. (No, really.)
6. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until light brown (or however cooked you like them).
There you can see the cookies as well as my new dishes and glasses I got with birthday money and gift cards! These cookies come out puffy and chewy, and the salt on top gives them a nice little bite. Enjoy! (And if you make them, let me know how the recipe works out for you!)Posted by Kat at August 16, 2010 05:00 PM
