… winning chocolate chip cookie recipe? I tried this recipe for the first time this Christmas, and the cookies turned out to be my favorite chocolate chip cookies (from Christmas with Southern Living 1997)!
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 (11.5 oz) package semisweet chocolate mega-morsels (I used dark chocolate chips)
1 cup walnut halves, toasted (I used chopped pecans)
1. Combine first 3 ingredients; stir well.
2. Combine butter and coffee granules in a small saucepan or skillet. Cook over medium-low heat until butter melts and coffee granules dissolve, stir occasionally. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature.
3. Combine butter mixture, sugars, egg, and egg yolk in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in mega morsels and walnuts.
4. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 2″ apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 325 F for 12-14 minutes. Let cool slightly on cookie sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND – I WILL SEE YOU MONDAY!
