Tempting Tuesday.

Yesterday I got a sweet treat from Rachel. She gave me a cute little bloggy award. (see sidebar) So I'm going to give you all a treat of my own!

Ok I've been talking about this for awhile now. My Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Oh, I have tons of recipes for those...you say? I sware if you don't love these cookies I'll buy your ingredients. Follow the recipe to the letter and you will be amazed. (I wouldn't even give these up to my bible study group.)


  • 2 c plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 c (2 sticks) UNsalted butter

  • 1c plus 2 tablespoons firmly packed dark brown sugar

  • 1/2 c granulated sugar

  • 1 large whole egg

  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 1/2 tablespoon pure Vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 c (1 bag) Semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • nuts if you'd wish (I don't)

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour,salt, baking soda; set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Turn off heat and add both sugars; Whisk until combined. Transfer mixture to a large bowl, and let cool to room temperature. (About 20 minutes)

  2. Whisk egg, egg yolk, and vanilla into butter mixture. Fold in flour mixture until just combined. Fold in chips. (& nuts) Wrap dough in plastic wrap; Refrigerate until firm, about 30-40 minutes.

  3. Preheat oven to 325*. Using two large spoons, place golf -ball size mounds of dough 3 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake until golden brown and the tops no longer look wet, 12-14 minutes. (Watch them until you get a feel for your oven.)Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes; transfer to a wire rack.

STAND BACK! They will be gobble up.

I hope you like them. Just a note though these are tough in humid weather. They want to flatten out. Let me know what you think.


  1. Looking fab! I might just have to throw a little baking spree over here and enjoy some cookies and coffee 'with' ya!!


  2. Your cookie recipe sounds great, gonna have to give it a try! Love your snappy toe description! I get those all the time! Mine are so bad that my toes separate and make a v shape, not pretty and hurts like you know what!

  3. Oh my gosh. This was way better than a fake gold credit card. :)

  4. Just steal Talk to me Goose. I would love it. After all, I totally stole it from Top Gun.

    I'm going to make these cookies--maybe even today!!! I'm excited.

  5. Wow- is it the humidity that makes cookies flatten out? I never knew that. I just know it's a real issue with my oatmeal cookies but they don't always do it. Ahhh- the weather. I feel like a more competent cook now that I know. : )

  6. oh come on...that's mean. showing us how good they look and we don't get a bite!!!

  7. I can't wait to try them! I love the new picture at the top. You have such a cute family.
