Do you ever feel like you are on a treasure hunt for the BEST recipes of certain foods? It is so fun for me to try and create the perfect recipe for certain recipes that I like to make on a regular basis. There are several recipes that I feel like I have found the PERFECT version of, and that I feel can not be improved upon. Some of these, but not limited to, are the following:
So, for those times you are craving a little treat, look no further for the PERFECT chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies
5 ½ -6 c. flour
4 t. vanilla
¼ t. salt (if using unsalted butter use 1 tsp. salt)
3 t. soda
3 sticks real butter, softened (or 1 c. butter & 1/2 c. peanut butter for pb cookies)
1 c. white sugar
2 c. brown sugar
Beat softened butter, eggs, brown sugar and sugar until mixture is fluffy and light in color. Add rest. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. They should appear light in color and not browned on the edges. Next day, reheat in microwave 5 seconds to make gooey again.
Any combination of fillings work…(triple chocolate chip, mint chocolate chip, cranberries & white chocolate, macadamia nuts, butterscotch and peanut butter chips etc..)
Do you REALLY need a sweet treat? Try these Skookies. Yes, it is like a heart attack on a plate, but it is OH SO YUMMY! A little goes a long ways! Find a friend to share one of these with--it is the perfect rich dessert for two!
How to make them you ask? Just bake a homemade cookie and put it on the bottom of a plate or bowl. Put vanilla (or any flavor) ice cream on top and drizzle with caramel, hot fudge, and any other toppings you would like :)
