Sunday Sweets

Have brand new box of parchment paper, will bake a batch of Martha Stewart cookies: I realized today I have to get a move on with trying some of these recipes because it’s due back at the library on February 4. Sad face. Boo. Anyway, Sunday’s my baking day and while I’m waiting for ciabatta dough to rise (and i’m skeptical about this recipe because the dough is dry and it’s not raising as high but that’s another post for another time) i got a yen for some super soft chocolate chip cookies … 

these are awesome. time to break out the milk … 

Martha Stewart’s Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies (from Martha Stewart’s Cookies)

You need: 
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
14 tablespoons of butter (1 and 3/4 sticks)
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chips (i like semi sweet)

Preheat your oven to 350. Whisk the flour and baking soda together. In your electric mixer (i’m assuming i’m the last person on the planet to finally own one and i’m using the hell out of her!) with the paddle attachment, cream the butter with the 2 sugars until fluffy. Add the salt, vanilla, eggs and mix. Add the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons onto parchment paper lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes until the middles are set and the edges golden and delicious looking. This batch made 22 cookies for me. The book says 3 dozen, but I think cookie recipe authors are pathological liars. I never get the amount they say the recipe will make. Shame on you, lying cookie recipe writers.
