|The cutest Cookie Monster I've ever seen!|
from Buns in my Oven blog
8Tbs cold butter, cut into cubes
3/4C brown sugar
1 large egg, cold
1 3/4C flour
1/2t baking powder
1/4t baking soda
1C semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2C walnuts, or pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 and grease baking sheets, or line with parchment paper. In a bowl, or standup mixer, beat the cold butter and brown sugar for about 1minute, you don't want to cream it or let it get fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and continue to beat until combined. Mix together the dry ingredients and add them to the butter and sugar mixture. You should have a stiff and somewhat sticky dough. If needed add another T. of flour. Add the chocolate chips and nuts and stir to combine. Measure out the dough in equal portions, I used a 1/4C and it made 13. Levain Bakery(where this recipe is from) uses 6oz portions! Place the cookies on the baking sheets and place them in the fridge for 5minutes to get cold again, this helps the cookie from spreading while cooking. Bake for 11-13minutes or until the slightest brown on the outside. Immediately transfer to a cooling rack. Go to a closet, or hiding place where no kids can find you, and eat them slow enough to really enjoy them!
