All I Wanted Was A Cookie…

By , February 2, 2011 6:39 am

A chocolate chip cookie to be exact…

I’m a chocolate chip cookie feen. They’re my most favorite cookie on the face of the earth. Big. Soft. Chewy. Warm. Gooey. Chocolate Chip Cookies. I haven’t had one in ages and awoke yesterday morning with the urge for one.

I’ve tried dozens and dozens of recipes. Anyone who has claimed they have the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever, I’ve tried it. So when I came across this recipe, I was intrigued. She call them  Thick & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. The recipe called for melted butter and an extra egg yolk. I was sold.

There was only one problem. I was in a time crunch. Spin class was in one hour.

Would I have time to bake these delicious cookies, get M dressed and secure a spot in an already crowded spin class?

The cookies won.

I stayed in my pj’s & slippers, never put my contact lenses in, and preheated the oven.

I followed her technique to a tee.

The result?

Big. Thick. Soft. Chewy. Gooey. Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The recipe was perfect. The cookies were perfect.

I ate the largest cookie I could find, drank an ice cold glass of milk, put my contact lenses in, dressed M for the day, and headed to to gym :)

It was the perfect morning.

  1. Oh, my. I LOVE fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies when the chips are all melty. So delicious.

  2. Wow, cookies for breakfast! Admittedly, I’ve done the same thing myself. Glad you were able to do it all- cookies and spin class!

  3. Estela, I think you made the right choice to skip spin class. This stack of cookies looks grand :)

  4. Mmmmmm. Cookies. The perfect way to start the day! ;]

    Perfect cookies and a visit to the gym? Sounds like a beautiful beginning to a new day:-).

  7. These have been on my “to make” list for some time! So glad they are worth it. I am selflessly on a mission to try to find “the best cookie recipe” out there! ;)

  8. Mmmmm…sometimes, the cookies just HAVE to win! :-)

  9. I’ve had this recipe saved for so long, now I am truly convinced! Sometimes you really need a cookie:-)

    mmmm, delicious! I’ve been craving some too and can almost taste them right now! Usually I just turn to the Pillsbury pre-sliced in the refrigerator to fight my craving. I might have to splurge and make these though if we get our snow day on Friday….can you believe we might get snow in Houston?!?!

  14. C. says:

    Those look delish! I am going to have to make these over the weekend for my hubby as a treat for all the shoveling he has been doing!

  15. Yum! I am so wanting these right now, as I sit on home on a cold, snowy day. If only I had the ingredients on hand..
