These are Good.

FIRST off, HAPPY 28th BIRTHDAY to one of my oldest, bestest friends!! Don't quite know what I'd do without you girl!

 Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand post:

Since I promised myself I would get back in to this blogging thing, hopefully gain back some visitors, and share some new/fun/fabulous/HEALTHY recipes and health advice, I knew I needed to add a post today. However, after a weekend out of town, I didn’t have much time to sit down and write a long post about the latest and greatest in the nutrition world, nor did I have a new healthy recipe to share. No. No. No. Crying baby, things to unpack, dinner to scrounge up from the fridge…

 

INSTEAD, I have an absolutely FABULOUS chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s not the slightest bit healthy, but it is 100% the best darn chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever had. If that isn’t enough to entice you…how about a scrumptious photo?

I love how plump and moist these cookies turn out. Yummy yum!

I tried this recipe at the end of last year and if you like an under-done cookie, then this is YOUR recipe! My only suggestion is to make sure NOT to bake them longer than 8 minutes!! The cookies should look like they aren’t done! Eat up buttercup!!

Happy Monday!!!

 

MY FAVORITE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

courtesy of Apple a Day

Ingredients: 
3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. bittersweet chocolate chunks
Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.  In a bowl, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color (about 1-2 minutes). Add egg and vanilla and mix in.
3.  Mix in flour, cornstarch or arrowroot powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chunks.
4.  Using a tablespoon, drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 8 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges, you want them to look under done.  (The tops will not brown, but do NOT cook longer than ten minutes.)
5.  Let cool, on the sheet, on a wire rack for five minutes.  Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely.  Makes approximately 3 dozen.
*I don’t recommend halving the recipe. I have tried it and the cookies turn out a bit dry. Baking is tricky like that though!
