It's been awhile since i baked cookies. Hubs is getting pretty tired of seeing all the cupcakes & other desserts I make. Sometimes a cookie is all he wants.
How about a good ole chocolate chip cookie?
How about a top-selling chocolate chip cookie with toasted almonds?
How about baking along with Melissa Murphy, herself!??!!?
How cool is that??? Today's Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe can be found here.
The recipe is simple & easy: butter, eggs, flour, sugar, brown sugar, chocolate chips, toasted almonds. I only had slivered almonds in my pantry so i just toasted those. I doubled the recipe and made two batches of dough. One without almonds for the hubs and one with the almonds. The instructions say that after you mix the dough, refrigerate for an hour, then roll into a log and refrigerate some more til its firm, then slice up the cookies and bake.
Uhhhh.... first batch.... without the nuts.... hubs & i couldnt wait for dessert so i refrigerated the dough, put our lil one to bed, ran back into the kitchen and just scooped some of the dough onto a cookie sheet and baked for 14 minutes.
O M G!!! Awesome cookies! I cant even describe it. These were THAT good. Better than Toll House's refrigerated cookie dough which i usually have on hand when i want a fast cookie.... not anymore! These cookies baked up much lighter and "plumper" than the Toll House dough and were much chewier... which the hubs loves. And with these, I add as much or as little sugar as I want (usually less cause there's chocolate). And I can add as much or as lil chocolate chips as i want (usually a lot)! This is now MY GO-TO chocolate chip cookie recipe!
The batch with nuts which i ended up rolling, cutting & baking.
