BASICS: Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Lucky Double Yolk!!

I learned two lessons from this weekend's batch of Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies.

1. Do not skimp on the brown sugar.
2. Cashews and Salted Almonds make excellent cookie nut selections. They add a touch more salt.

One of my two eggs was a double yolk! Twins! So these are lucky cookies.

I like my cookies more cake-y so I add a touch more flour but due to the lack of brown sugar available in our cabinet it just made for less flavorful bread. Baketime - perfecto! Soft in the middle, a little bit crispy around the edges. We solved our lack of flavor problem by adding 3 jumbo marshmallows between two cookies and putting in the microwave for 14 seconds until they start of get very jumbo. Smoosh down. TA DA!! Try not to feel like a fatty.
